Follow the route towards Arawata Saddle. After climbing about half the steep section below the saddle access is obtained to a snow shelf leading out to the south-east, which provides a straightforward route to the summit, with two pitches of steep, loose rock to the summit ridge. About five hours out from the hut. With glacial recession this route may be difficult or dangerous from ice and rockfall.
