 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.
