Tricky glacier navigation before the "rock" starts is the crux of this route. Getting to the 'schrund can be a challenge. Aim for the col to the west. There is a ramp system of VERY LOOSE rock (keep your crampons on and wear your helmet) that makes for a few hundred feet of fourth/low fifth class scrambling to the col, then easy talus up the ridge to the summit. In good weather with an early start, would make a good day to follow the ridge to the East and enchain Bird Peak.
