Route Description


For the first few hours from high camp the route is safe snow walking over rising but undulating ground. At the base of the peak is a short rock gully scramble before being faced with a 35-40 degree snow wall of approximately 200 ft. This is the time to rope up.This wall leads to the main Yala ridge in turn leading to the summit. The ridge traverse is mostly on snow but involves some rocky scrambling.

Essential Gear


Full winter gear is essential and would include crampons, ice axe and rope. A couple of snow stakes would be useful too.
