From Manganui Lodge follow the T-bar to the base of the Top Tow (rope tow). Ascend the slope following the safety fence to 1540m and cross the large open vee-shaped valley. This is the start zone for the Manganui Monster (avalanches of size 4–5 have originated from here in the past). Ascend the rounded ridge right of the south entrance to the crater rim.
