From Hungry Packer Lake, gain the ridge the the north and follow this west to the cirque and glacier beneath the North Face ( you can also approach from a camp at Midnight Lake by gaining the ridge to the south and following that west ).

Exit the North Face to the south and around to the left ( east ) to gain the summit the easiest way.
