Climbing Routes
North-West Ridge II 5.6
Originally climbed in 1936 with a detour around the gendarme high on the ridge. The described route takes up the gauntlet and challenges the gendarme directly. The rock is somewhat loose. Selected Alpine Climbs page 255

North-West Couloir II
July 1960. The obvious wide snow/ice couloir in the NW face, a speedy ascent route best climbed early in the day. Dougherty, Selected Alpine Climbs page 255
