this is the easiest route to the summit and the usual descent route for most parties.1650m. 6 hours in ascent, 3 to 4 hours in descent.

Tiring boot-pack (5hrs total up - 1,650m) after 2 previous days on. Thin snow cover at the top, great spring skiing conditions in the mid section with the odd ice patch, exposed rocks and sharks! Fantastic and at times exposed ski descent!
