A moving feast, ice on this face is generally quite broken and travel threatened by seracs. Crevasses frequently cut access up the face as early as late spring. However, in good snow conditions, a route through can sometimes be found. If the south west ridge is gained before the summit, an anvil shaped gendarme forming the low peak can be bypassed.
