The route follows a very large and very beautiful left-facing dihedral for about two or three pitches. The dihedral provides fantastic climbing in the corner, though sometimes the jugs out on the exposed right arete are just too alluring. Alas, this feature comes to an end, and so does the fun. A couple or three "stunningly" mediocre pitches wander up to end up pretty much right at the summit.
From the right end of the south face, scramble left and down an easy gully system until stopped by a big drop off. The route is now right overhead.
