  From the basin climb easy, scrubby slopes on the true left of the stream into tussock basins and scree below the peak. Ascend easy slopes to a notch just south-west of the summit.

  The gully in the centre of the face leads to a steep traverse to the left, and is a good winter ice climb.

  Climb scree slopes east of the peak to the ridge. Follow the ridge till a ledge allows bluffs and gendarmes to be turned by traversing slopes on the Silverstream side to regain the upper ridge. . Can also be done from the Silverstream-Branch River confluence.
