  Just a small bump when ascended from the Mueller Glacier side but the Hoophorn Ridge which connects with Mt Edgar Thomson provides good rockclimbing when climbed from the lower Tasman Valley.

  A number of routes exist from the Metelille Névé. A steep couloir leads almost directly to the summit, the rock face to the couloir’s right gives more technical climbing, and further right there is a short couloir leading onto the North West Ridge.

Freda Du Faur, Peter Graham, Dec 1909. (The couloir route was climbed by Peter Graham and Claude Macdonald, Feb 1909, while a couloir and chimney were climbed by O Bainbridge, Jack Clarke, W Tennant, Mar 1903.)

  Ascend to Sladden Saddle, circle round the back of the peak and head up the 150m snow slope (beware of slab avalanches in winter or early summer). Then follow the ridge over a short step to the summit. This is the usual descent route.

Descended: Peter Graham, Mr & Mrs L H Lindon, B Spencer, W Fisher, Jan 1911.
