  From the Routeburn Track follow the track to Sugarloaf Pass. Above the bushline sidle left on snow grass ledges into the head of a small basin. Climb steepish gully (begins E40 341 019) gaining access to the basin above Bridal Veil Falls. From here follow snowfields to the couloir, which gives access to the summit. From the Routeburn Track follow the true left of Bridal Veil Creek to bush edge. Follow the left branch to the head of the valley gaining tussock ledges above bluffs at about 1,400m, giving access to the basin above Bridal Veil Falls. This route is a good descent route, dropping into the eastern side at times.
