It appears possible to reach the extreme northern end of the Park Glacier by a steep snow face with an upper rock band, at the south-west end of the shelf of the hanging glacier beneath Maiti-iti and Maori. From the Park Glacier the summit could he reached by easy snow routes on either the North East or South Ridges.
The snow face was climbed from the Dart Névé by Phil Penney and Simon Harris
