  From the Rees climb the Clarke Slip to gain the Clarke spur (or reach it from the north branch of Hunter Creek). Either ascend the spur to the summit, or detour on to the snow slopes to the west or cross the snow slopes to Pyramid Col and complete the climb by that ridge. Many variations are possible. There is a small bivvy rock on the ridge out of the Clarke Slip at E40 509 150 but it is not much good in rough weather.
