  Traverse from the summit of Gordon. From the col between the two peaks ascend the south ridge to gain the low peak. From the summit of Frances use the north-west ridge. Watch for loose rock - in 1992 a large rock avalanche fell down the east face, crossed the Maud Glacier and continued some way up the other side of the valley.
