Start on the west side of the ridge, then cross over to the east side and negotiate an awkward chimney. Airy ridge climbing leads to Tower 1 pass this on the east. Stay on the east to Tower 2, to a tricky spot passing under several overhanging blocks and descending into the gully between 2 and 3. Then pass around the buttress which forms Tower 3. Once past 3 climb up the loose gully to the notch to the right of the small tower (3.5) between 3 and 4. Go down and cross under 3.5 (sand or seasonal snow), and head up to the buttress of Tower 4, a ledge leads across this to an easy gully up to the gap just before the main summit block (top of Feather Couloir). A 5.4 pitch leads up the headwall to the summit.
