Paul Horton and Joe Kelsey did the first  recorded ascent via the Northwest Arete (the prominent arete/ridge on the left margin of the South's lower buttress). The line on the lower buttress was new, but the party found pins on their West Ridge route on the summit tower, as well as an Army piton rap anchor near the summit.
