  Reach the West Ridge from Jagged Col. The lowest section of the ridge is trickiest and can be avoided by taking snow slopes on the Jagged Stream side. Once the difficulties are passed, follow the rock ridge to the summit.

  From Peg Col follow the straightforward ridge to Pt 2344 metres. From here the ridge is a little more exposed and involves a short downclimb and traverse along a small ledge to bypass a 10-metre gut. A 10-metre section of loose argillite in the final col requires care before the last rise to the summit.

  This ridge can be reached from various points between Prop Peak and Peg Col and is mostly straightforward. A 15-metre gut at the low point of the ridge can be downclimbed and traversed on a narrow ledge, and a 10-metre section of loose argillite shortly before the summit requires care.
