1 North East Ridge 2+

Rather loose, exposed climbing.
Mike Andrews, Donald Cargo, February 1973 (descended)
2 Beetham Buttress 3
0
Ascend the buttress right of the central gully on Barkley Face on mediocre quality rock.
Harry Clark, Craig Nottle, December 1982
3 South West Ridge 2+
0
Gained either by the Barkley Glacier and a couloir to the low point in the ridge between Mts Nathan and Chudleigh, or via the North West Ridge of Mt Chudleigh to the head of the Barkley Glacier, and then up the couloir. From here follow the ridge up loose rock to the summit. Probably the easiest descent route.
