  From the upper Ramsay Glacier follow a glacial lead on the west face just north of the saddle between Pt 2230 metres and Pt 2286 metres. Climb this, then head south to join the South West Ridge. Follow the ridge, moving on to the face on the right to avoid a small gut of loose rock.

  Reach the ridge by crossing the toe of the South West Ridge at Pt 2230 metres, passing through a gap to the Lauper Stream face. From here, cross the snow slope to join the South East Ridge, which offers good climbing to the summit.
