Climbing Routes
South-East Ridge (Normal Route) II 5.4
An impressive solo first ascent for its day. It has always been a very popular route: a little glacier, snow and easy rock, and a summit with impressive views. Dougherty, Selected Alpine Climbs page 146

North-East Ridge, Tarrant Buttress IV 5.7
This impressive and very aesthetic buttress of rock offers an excellent introduction to the longer and harder alpine rock routes. A bold undertaking in 1955. The rock is typically very good except for some rubble near the top and the climbing is always interesting, mostly easy 5th class with the crux right at the top. It is not really a ridge climb, rather a combination of ridge and face. One of the best routes in the Lake O'Hara area and highly recommended. Dougherty, Selected Alpine Climbs page 146
