  Climbed via Sudden Valley Stream by ascending the long ridge behind Hawdon Hut. Reaching the 1794m point, follow the Northwest Spur for 800m, climbing over several very exposed gendarmes to reach the long scree slope into the head of Sudden Valley. From here both peaks may be reached via the scree/snow gully between them. Allow 110% of all daylight hours if you intend returning to the Hawdon Valley.

A steep scree or snow slope between Mt Wilson and Mt Scott gives good climbing access to both peaks from the head of Sudden Valley Stream.

From Sudden Valley Stream, ascending a steep scree gully 2km upstream of the Sudden Valley Biv. Aim for the deep notch just north of the 1853m point. The ridge is then followed to the peak (the East Edwards side provides bypasses).
