About 2 km north of Hermitage Hut follow a north-east trending spur before traversing into a basin between Ashburton and Hakatere Peaks. From here the summits are straightforward climbs.

A grassy trough beside the lateral moraine at the foot of the Ashburton Glacier leads to scree slopes interspersed with rock bluffs. Climb these to the upper basin lying between Ashburton and Hakatere Peaks. The summit is separated from the basin by 100 metres of steepish rock and can be approached by either a diagonal gully descending from the Ashburton–Hakatere ridge or by way of the south ridge and easy ledges on the south-east face.
