From Armadillo Saddle climb scree and snow slopes to the north-east of the peak.
Ski touring option: From The Ant-hill ski north to the saddle south of spot height 2429m. Ski around the spur of this point on its eastern side to gain the glacier basin east of Mt Richmond. Then ascend towards Mt Acland and gain access to the Aida Glacier via the small notch at about 2400m. Alternatively, traverse the north ridge from Richmond.
