White Pointer IV 3+
Follow a snow gully right of the central buttress. Above the buttress, move slightly left to gain a deep, narrow runnel and follow it to exit 20m right of the summit. A cornice that forms at the summit can be bypassed on good steep rock.
Bill McLeod, November 1994
Masquerade IV 4+ 15 450m
A long rock route on the south face of the south-east outlier of Pt 2428. Begin on a pedestal on compact grade 12 rock and climb directly towards the left side of the summit overhang. At mid-height, traverse right along a ledge, then climb the upper wall on a system of small features leading towards the left end of the top-most overhang. Fine, sustained climbing on excellent rock with steady climbing on the last pitches providing the crux.

East Face II 2
A snow-filled gully angling up to the upper snowfield can be sighted from low in the valley of Freds Stream and provides rapid altitude gain. Cross over a small shoulder and angle up the north-east facing slopes to the summit.
