Climbs the col north east of the summit and follows the knife edge ridge to the summit. Crux is a Gendarme which must be traversed for two pitches of AI3. Generally requires a snow cave bivy at 10,400 ft in order to launch a summit attempt and descent the following day. Descend down the same route.
