[Looking up Pointless and Interstellar overdrive from low down Point 5, 2 kb]On first ascent we started at foot of point five. Diagonally up and left on iced slabs into a corner. Up the corner to below a roof. Wide bridging up the corner to the roof and then a strenuous pull onto a rib on the right turned the roof (crux). Snow and ice face climbing to the crest of Observatory ridge just below the summit plateau.
