Access the lower west ridge from the Copland Valley track and scramble at will until gaining the ridge crest. Continue along the ridge and turn notches on the northern and southern aspects. Short sections of up to grade 12 climbing on good quality rock, for the area. One abseil to the snow slopes of the upper ridge.
