Traverse underneath the South Face until reaching a sandy notch that gains the separating the Impala from the Springbok. Start climbing 10 feet to the left of the notch. All difficulties along the ridge can be bypassed to the left. Excellent cracks on the final "headwall" pitch lead to the (false) summit. 4-5 pitches total.


Follow the descent directions for the South Face.
