North Route (summer) D
Follow the winter line up the obvious steep chimney and gully, continuing up the jagged arete of the Direct. In summer it is vegetated and is extremely loose, but was surprisingly done as a summer route before it was climbed in winter. Recommended equipment includes nailed boots, tweed jacket for sticking into the chimney, long-shafted ice axe and big balls. Traditional!

Horribly loose and greasy, although a good line.

A somewhat panic-inducing ascent, mostly conducted by pulling on tufts of grass and freely moving spikes. Smearing on steep mud was also required, plus a whole host of other techniques.
