 From the upper County névé, negotiate big schrunds to access the main gully at about J34 411783 / BW18 311 167. Generally the route follows up the middle of the face with a mix of loose and reasonable rock, snow patches and a long snow couloir between two rock ribs. Loose rock to the right completes the climb, reaching the summit ridge about 30 metres left of the high peak. Not excessively difficult climbing but sustained and moderately exposed. The route has variable greywacke, best approached when there is still snow in the gullies.
