West Ridge 3
0
If climbed from the corner of the Walpole Valley the ridge provides a varied fare of rock climbing over pinnacles, across chevals, and up short walls. The rock is variable and in places offers some difficult moves. The final rise to the South Peak is up short slabs interspersed with ledges. The climbing here is easier than lower on the ridge.
C Lake, R Thompson, Feb 1976.
Reay Glacier Route 2-
0
Ascend the Reay Glacier keeping on the right until overlooking the Murchison Valley and then up easy snowslopes to the South Peak. A quick and easy descent route.
