From the Ribas hut, follow a good trail through the scree to the base of the glacier. Put on your crampons, and follow a usually well packed trail through the snow. The route changes from year to year depending on where crevasses open up, and ladders are occasionally installed over large unavoidable crevasses.
At any rate, climb the glacier until underneath a rock wall known as Yanasascha. Skirt it to its right and climb up snow to the summit.
Beautiful and easy, though a lot of work. Bring crevasse rescue gear and know how to use it - most of the crevasses are enormous and gaping, but it pays to be safe. Rope up at the start of the crevasse field, and wand the route if it isn't. I descended this in a whiteout, and was completely dependent on wands.
Difficulty is F(easy).
