Normally climbed via the Good Luck Creek basin by the West Ridge, or from the col above Lake Anna via the steep South Face and South Ridge (an excellent route). The West Ridge can be dangerously corniced under winter conditions, making it extremely hard to negotiate. To reach the basin, ascend the slide upstream of Upper Deception Hut to the scrub line, then sidle into the head of the creek.
