This route offers a direct approach from the Bracken Snowfield, though the rock is quite poor in
places. A snow arête gives way to a narrow ridge of loose rock and pinnacles, another snow arête
and then some gendarmes. A variation, keeping to snow on the south side before the crux, has
also been used. The section from the East Ridge up steep, loose rock flanks to the West Ridge
is normally the crux.
