Description

From Kevin McLane's 'Alpine Select':

One of the two most commonly climbed routes on the peak, the East Face gives the better climb during early season conditions, before the Gunsight Gap couloir develops a huge mid-height bergschrund that bars all progress. Climb the 45 degree couloir to the gunsight gap, trending right below its top to gain the krumholtz slopes of the peaks east sides. Scramble up to the summit from here, easy until below the summit tower (Some 4th). 2-3 h. Descend the route or descend via the West Buttress Route.

Protection

Crampons and ice axe, depending on conditions.
