Via Mueller Hut. The saddle is reached via the upper Mueller Glacier route to Barron Saddle Hut or the ‘high route’ via the Annette Plateau, Sladden Saddle and either across or beneath the North West Ridge of Darby. On the Dobson side either follow a rotten rock rib directly below the saddle or diagonally down snowslopes under Scissors.
