Has a reputation for being a classic route, with good exposure and rock to a very small summit.
I did not go the the notch but started the route lower down where the shallow gully met the snow - seemed like an easier start and cut short the slogging.
Without the snow it's a monstrous talus slog - so early season is recommended.
Descent is by way of the South/East slope at Class 3 into the basin south east of the peak, stay high so as to pass over the low point of the long broad East Ridge and back to your approach route.
