 Gain access to the full East Ridge from the head of Tukino skifield by climbing into and across the huge basin below the Mangatoetoenui Glacier. The lower ridge is straightforward, made more interesting by the steep bluffs that fall below to the Mangatoetoenui Glacier. The ridge gradually narrows and steepens: the final step below the summit, although short, will likely require a rope. In winter the rocks may be heavily rimed. The final step can also be reached from the north-east corner of the Summit Plateau, by traversing across the South East Face between the two bands of cliffs.
