  From the Cameron Glacier, aim for snow slopes leading to the South Ridge. Travel up the ridge is initially straightforward, passing several pinnacles. Climb two rock steps (approximately 10 and 15 metres high) : the first takes a corner followed by a small rotten wall, and the second follows a small gully. From here reasonable rock leads to the summit.

  From the Cameron Glacier climb a narrow snow lead directly below The Twins. Climb through a rock band to join the final section of the South Ridge or take the direct finish by climbing loose rock to join the summit ridge between the two peaks.

  Take the gully from the Cameron Glacier that meets the Twins–Tower ridge just north of the north Twin. Cross a schrund at the head of the slope and continue on snow and rock to the col and summit ridge. There is one steep ice pitch near the top.
