Climb the snow tongue on the northwest face, north of the west ridge. At its top, it may be necessary to climb a pitch of rock (difficulty ranging from 5.4 to 5.7 depending on how much snow is present) along the final section of the north ridge to the summit. Glacial retreat has made the bottom of this climb steeper since the first ascent.
Straight off the glacier left of the west ridge. The lower portion of the snow tongue is the steepest and can melt out in dry years.
