These 1 1.5 pitch routes start on the south face of the summit block, and finish at the very top. From the end of these climbs, scramble (Class 2/3) southeast to the saddle, and then take the trail back down.

Getting There 

Its a long hike up to the base if you just want to do one of these climbs. More often, they are done after climbing one of the longer routes up to the summit area.
