ClimbingEdit

The standard climbing route is the Southwest Ridge, a moderate snow climb that is popular with climbers and can be crowded at times. It possesses a difficulty rating of PD+/AD- on the French System for grading alpine routes but deep snow on the summit slopes causes most failures for parties attempting the ridge.

Other established climbing routes include the following:

  1. Southeast Ridge (alpine grade TD-).
  2. East Face Direct (alpine grade TD).
