From the West Hunter, traverse on the right hand side of point 2035 and onto the South East Ridge of Moira. From the ridge, cross the Grant Glacier and gain the col between Moira Peak and Mt Head, and then ascend ridge to summit. A traverse of Mt Head and Moira Peak from the West Hunter bivvy is a great trip to do.
