North Ridge 2
The terrain out of the upper Dobson Valley is steep, and loose in summer. Most ascents are via the Main Divide ridge from either north or south.
Samuel Turner and Conrad Kain, March 1914
Stonewall 3
The east face of Mt Spence is an axe head of rock which succumbed to Bill McLeod's repeated attempts. Stonewall begins at a peaklet below the face, heads leftwards across the snow slope to reach the centre of the rock face. There are acres of climbable rock on the face, and the orange coloured overhang seventy metres left of the summit provides the target for the 500m route.
Bill McLeod, March 1995
South Ridge 2
Traverse north from Foster on the crest of the Divide, until a 200m high but readily climbable step is reached, and proceed to the high point.
Bill Beaven, Norman Hardie, Jim McFarlarne, Earle Riddiford, January 1948
West Face 2
From the Le Blanc Lake climb the easy west slopes gaining height to reach the low peak. Avoid the tricky slabs by following snow leads where possible. Descended, Bill Beaven, Norman Hardie, Jim McFarlarne, Earle Riddiford, January 1948.
David Hall, Harry Scott, January 1952
