  From Centennial Hut a straightforward climb. The glacier ramp east of the Newton Rocks and St Mildred Peak allows access to the west ridge. A final 30m rock headwall before the summit needs to be negotiated. Stunning views of all the Main Divide peaks including the Spencer Face of Elie de Beaumont can be enjoyed from the summit. In winter, on skis, this is an excellent half-day jaunt.
