Route Climbed: North Ridge to North Summit Date Climbed: 14 October 2003
A description of the route can be found under 'routes', we reached the northern summit and came down via the central glacier.
We left the bivi site at around 2.30am and made the North Summit at around 11am, the descent took a long time as we had to navigate our way down the glacier absailing and downclimbing short sections as required. We rejoined our ascent route lower down the mountain (see the photos) and reached the bivi site at 9pm.
