  Follow the Lyell Glacier moraine to a prominent gully leading to View Peak. Follow the gully until above the steep lower slopes, then traverse towards Goethe. Climb steep rock and snow to join the West Ridge – easiest west of Pt 2246 metres – then follow the straightforward rocky ridge to the summit. This ridge has been traversed from McCoy Col with much scrambling and rock climbing.

  From Kirk Stream climb the loose rock face to the ridge and follow it to the summit. The South East Ridge can be reached via Gladiator Col. Alternatively, follow a steep easttrending glacial lead from the glacier on the south face of Goethe, which joins the South East Ridge about 150 metres below the summit.

  Climb the spur at the junction of Kirk Stream and the Lyell Glacier. Access to the spur is the crux of the route.
