  Gained either by the Barkley Glacier and a couloir to the low point in the ridge between Mts Nathan and Chudleigh, or via the North West Ridge of Mt Chudleigh to the head of the Barkley Glacier, and then up the couloir. From here follow the ridge up loose rock to the summit. Probably the easiest descent route.

Samuel Turner, February 1918
