Pick a route on scree through steep rock and bluffs, initially making a rising traverse to the north-west, to reach the glacier north-east of the summit of Mt Avoca. From here gain the North East Ridge and climb loose rock to the top.

About 4 km from Weka-Burnett Bivouac take a prominent scree gully south of Pt 1598 metres. From the head of the scree traverse north to avoid bluffs and aim for the base of a broad ramp leading to the summit. Scramble over the last steep loose rock to the top. This route is tricky when there is no consolidated snow.
