Start to the right of Fire in the Sky and follow the
left tending snow ramp to the base of the steeper mixed
ground. From here head directly up the edge of the rock
spur between the west and south faces. When the gradient
eases, gain the spur itself and continue up towards
the top of the face. Tackle the final headwall via a large
corner which is blocked at the top by several large chock
stones. Climb under these to easier ground to finish just
to the right of the normal descent gully leading from the
summit of Single Cone.
