A short snow climb from Waimakariri Col. A traverse to, and descent off, Carrington Peak can also be achieved. The icecap of Mt Armstrong can be quite unstable at times, as can the glacier descending on to Waimakariri Col.

A long climb that can be done by fit parties in a day from Otira. Follow the Rolleston River Route to where it leaves the scrub and crosses the river. Climb west to the spur separating the Rolleston River from the stream draining Lake Florence, and continue up to the summit. The icecap of Mt Armstrong can be quite unstable at times.
