  A short distance upstream of Sinclair Bivvy, follow a moraine crest to the line of bluffs running parallel to the valley below Bandit Peak. Move diagonally through the bluffs on snow slopes to reach the crest of the South West Ridge. Follow easy rock along the ridge to the summit. An alternative route on to the ridge exists at the northern end of the bluffs and crosses the glacier between Pt 2300 metres and Amazon Peak.

Probably climbed by David Parr and Trevor James, 1948, but the first recorded ascent was by Mervyn Beauvais and Russell Pearce, December 1964
