  From the Ada River ascend Camera Gully, bypassing a waterfall on the true left, to a tarn at its head. A longer but interesting alternative is to use Ada Pass route to gain the south ridge, and follow it (or traverse eastern basins) into a basin south-west of the tarn. Climb northeast from the tarn to the col of Ada Pass route. Climb the step on the South West Ridge direct.

  Directly opposite Ada Pass Hut climb through easy bush into a tussock basin. Continue up, passing a series of tarns, to a col at its head, just east of peak 2087m. Sidle scree or snow slopes eastwards and climb to a col at the bottom of a step on the South West Ridge. Climb the step direct; easier ground above leads to the summit. A longer but easier alternative is to continue traversing easy slopes north-east of Gloriana, and gain a spur to the north-east.

  From the West Branch, a basin west of Faerie Queene allows access to the summit ridge, and a basin west of Gloriana leads to Camera Gully & Ada Pass routes.
