I did the west ridge a few years ago, on the way back from the upper tasman, so we walked up the bonney glacier and camped at the top of that. There was about 200m of snow slope before we got to the rock then maybe 200-300m of steepish rock to get onto the ridge. We might have done a pitch or two, but mostly simulclimbed with about 20m of rope between us, seemed reasonable (ie enough good gear).

We decended by downclimbing the couloir back to the bonney, which was really quick and saved all the abseiling. The ascent took about 3 or 4 hours and the decent took about 1.5 hours. The book reckons the couloir is a funnel for all sorts of debris, but this didn't seem to be a problem when we were there.

I'd say the rock is grade 10ish. We climbed in leathers and it was fine.
