Climb the wide ice couloir to the right of the North Buttress for several hundred feet, and trend left toward the ridge. Follow this to the top. Summit block is 5.8 with a really bad fall, so take a half rope to be safe.

Easy morning climb if you are acclimated. We did this and Swiss Arete on the same day and were back to Glacier Camp before dark.
