Either sidle pt 1624 or go over the top. Once on the main ridge, an easy stroll across a few rocky knolls leads to pt 1524 and a sidle, on the north, under pt 1662, into a saddle (in the mist, looking back at pt 1662, a gendarme appears to block the ridge off pt 1662). It's an easy walk over pt 1484. We sidled under pt 1625 but it's steep and unstable. Better to climb to near the summit and pick up the obvious (steep) spur leading down to the biv. Pick your way down avoiding the many holes.
