  Begin up a snow gut (now often rock) that descends between the north-west ridge and the north rib. The route then swings left up the north rib, east of this gut.

  From Lake Barrowman, follow the broad gully directly to the summit of Dog Kennel Peak. Falling from the route will see you in the lake, so take care!

  From the South Butler Valley, head straight up the snow (rock) gully to the col immediately south-east of Mt Barrowman, and en route climb around a small waterfall out to the right. The last part to the col is difficult (slabs). The back (Lake Barrowman) side of Dog Kennel Peak offers steep snow and nice slabs.

  From the South Butler Valley, follow the narrow snow (or rock) gully leading up to the lowest point on the ridge between Mt Huss and Dog Kennel Peak. (The small peak immediately west of here is referred to as the Dog.) There are two difficult rock steps, the first leading up to the Dog. From there, descend a narrow snow ridge to a second col, where there is another rock step on the ridge, before the final easier climb to Dog Kennel Peak.
