PhotoDescr: Here the route up Mummery South is clearly shown: amble up to the 'schrund, wherever it might be bridged, and then kick steps up the forty-five degree snow, using a single ice axe for stability and security, for about 550' until the crest of the snow ridge is reached (and then the fun begins!). The easy ascent/exit route is on the far right - more snow pillows and troughs along the north ridge.
