From Aspiring Hut cross Cascade Creek (bridged) and strike up through the bush from the top of the flats opposite the hut, to meet Rough Creek at the foot of the hill slope. Cross Rough Creek on avalanche ice to gain the scrubby ridge to the north. The ridge joins Governors’ Ridge between Plunket Dome and Islington. The main obstacle is usually a large schrund a short distance below Governors’ Ridge.
Via the ridge north of Rough Creek.
