From the hut traverse the Iso and Dipso Glaciers at about the same level as the Colin Todd Hut, until the north end of the Skyscraper massif is reached. The route is up a poorly defined buttress on the face, about 200m west of the Skyscraper-Mainroyal Col, slightly east of a short snow tongue. The buttress leads to the summit ridge a short distance south of the peak, which is then reached along easy rock and snow. The face takes two to three hours and is a sustained rock climb. From the hut to the summit requires about six hours.

Follow route to the summit ridge of Stargazer and then traverse south to the high col between the two peaks. A steep and rotten but not difficult rock wall leads to the summit, about six hours out from Colin Todd Hut.
