 From the head of Moa Stream climb to the saddle just north of Pt 2054 metres. The tussock rib on the left of the couloir sometimes provides the best route to the saddle. Cross the glacier on the south-west face of Mt Williams and head up, aiming for the col between the twin peaks of Mt Williams. Access to the col may be complicated by a schrund. From here, move slightly out on to the north-west face and climb loose rock to the summit.

Comments

As of 2018, the section of this climb from the glacier to col between the two summits requires ugly climbing on steep compacted scree/moraine and loose rock when the route is in summer conditions. A better alternative is to climb the south east ridge which is accessed from the Mathias side of the ridge. This route is a lot shorter and leads directly to the summit.
