  From the bottom of Lyttle's Flat climb a gully onto the ridge just left of the rock scar. Follow the ridge to the first rock band, ascend the prominent white buttress on the left of the rock band, then move up right, keeping to good rock. Join the ridge at a short corner and cheval, continue to the South West Peak, descend to the col and then up a snow gully to join the South West Ridge on the right.

Dave Vass, Dec 1989.

  From Camera Flat cross the river and climb a large fan, going round to the right and up a gully, then across a small spur. Descend to a second gully, moving diagonally right into the big gully which is followed to the snow-fields, and then cross to the Marian Face and back to the ridge beyond the East Peak.

Ron Dickie, Harold Jacobs, Feb 1964.
