  Via Waihopai Valley. Walk up Gosling Stream to Gosling Hut (6 bunks, standard, no mattresses). The stream forks at about 1.2km upstream. The true right branch soon becomes rugged; bushcrash past a waterfall on true right, following a cairned trail, into upper basins and onto the summit. From the stream fork, the true left branch is easily followed through open forest, and across large tussock and scree basins to the summit ridge.

  Via Leatham Valley. At about 3.3km from the mouth of Boulder Stream, on its north bank, is an obvious side stream, which leads to a low saddle into upper Station Creek (best to avoid the lower creek). Good campsite here. Gain the long rocky ridge, crossing three minor bumps, leading to the summit slabs.
