The route is accessed from the South Huxley Valley and by abseil from the col just north of Mt Huxley. The route begins at the lowest point in the centre of the south west face on a rock pedestal and follow the prominent buttress direct to the summit. Sustained steep rock with crux pitches of excellent quality give 450m of climbing at grade 14-16.
