DescriptionA single low-fifth-class pitch on pillow basalt to the summit ridge follows a fourth-class scramble up the east ridge, which can be gained by climbing a mossy friction slab on the north side of the ridge. Scramble west along the ridge to the summit.
Great views of Destroyer, Enigma, Constance, etc., from a small but sharp-looking peak. Exposure off the south side of the east ridge makes it sporty.
LocationThe start of the route is at the base of the Nun's north face above the boulder fields of the climber's trail that leaves the Tunnel Creek trail westbound near the bridge beyond the Tunnel Creek shelter.
Three <50m rappels from the top drops you off the east ridge and back above the boulderfield.
