(1) From Burstall Day Use parking spot, we simply followed the Burstall Pass Trail.
About five minutes after passing a big boulder in the middle of the trail, we turned left to a trail (cairn) which led us up to this valley. This is also the time we realized we left the scramblers book back in the car, so we had to look for the most logical approach to the col.
The scramble up to the col was very stressful for us. There were a lot of loose, slippery rocks.
(3) The final ascent to the summit was the most exciting part of this trip. Here's alex ascending the crux. From a distance, this part looks very steep, exposed and impossible to ascend. It could fool you and make you turn back.
(1) Beautiful warm weather with gentle cool breeze. We stayed up here for a while to enjoy an outstanding view of the surrounding peaks and the glaciers.
Here's a sample of the ridge down from the summit.
On our descent, we scrambled down to the scree col and showered ourselves with dirt while scree skiing back down to the valley.
