DescriptionHear up the rocky slope on the left till you reach the wall and can not continue to walk any higher. Traverse onto the glacier and go below the steep snow wall towards the lower grade crevasse covered area. Navigate through the crevasses (which can be time consuming) and you will find yourself on the summit ridge, Follow the left side of the ridge to the summit. Take a few pictures and prepare for an intimidating decent.
There is heli-skiing in this mountain so surpluses of large wands can be found near the summit, and can be useful for the decent. A few make a great deadman, and repelling will definitely speed things up.
