From the lower Barrowman Valley, scramble up onto this rocky ridge. Higher up, a snowfield
gives a break, and there is enjoyable climbing on weatherworn rock slabs. Mixed ground then
leads to the low peak. There is a descent and considerable climb from the low to the high peak
and, on the first ascent, the route led north across a snowfield to a col on the North Ridge. Easy
scrambling along that leads to the high peak.
