~5.8 300m (lll/lV) A serious but excellent route. Approach on the north-west approach. From the toe of the upper North-West Ridge descend left (north) down a gully to the Elkhorn Glacier. Cross the glacier to below the middle of the North Face. Start to the left of the centre of the face up a rib between two parallel gullies. Steep climbing leads to the snowpatch. Climb direct up the snow/ice to finish up several steep rock pitches to the summit. (CAJ 1979 p.73) FA: Joe Bajan, Peter Busch 18 June 1977
