A direct snow climb from Whitbourn Saddle via Snow White and Maori glaciers.
|The East Ridge.||II 2||
From the summit of Maori descend the shattered rock of the West Face to the col on the Main Divide. The East Ridge of Maiti-iti is a climb of about 100 metres, consisting of a lower section of loose rock and a more difficult and exposed upper section, before a short snow ridge leads to the summit, about l.5 hours from Maori. The col between Maori and Maiti-iti could probably be reached from the Dart Névé.
|The South Face.||II 2||
The steep snow face of Maiti-iti is reached by climbing straightforward snow slopes beneath the ice-cliffs of the Park Glacier.
Barry Scott & Rob Petit, Dec 1974.
Maiti-iti was first climbed by Lindsay Bruce, Alex Gourlay, and Les and Doug Brough from the Snow-White Glacier in January, 1958. The first ascent from the Dart was by Laurie Kennedy and Bruce Robertson, who traversed from Maori in February, 1966.
