Go up diagonally rightwards to reach the ridge and follow this 35° slope,to the snow dome to the right of the col Felik.
From the col go W by a broad snow slope at 20/25°, then NW by an east SE facing SE ridge which leads to the summit of Castor.
Frequently corniced with sometimes the odd steep section above crevassed snow slopes.
