Pretty easy slog to the summit except for crossing the bergschrund just below the summit ridge. In late 2000, one had to go far left to a small [1m] and weak snowbridge, then hop across, going immediately into full dagger arrest to "belay" the next person across. We then angled up and right up a moderate slope, roped but unbelayed, to the summit ridge. We did not descend via the same route, but downclimbed, lowered and rapped off the summit ridge over the middle of the schrund where it was rather wide.
