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.
