Climb the spur on the northern side of the creek that joins the Lawrence River immediately
north of Hermitage Hut. Gain the high col overlooking the South Ashburton Valley and follow
the rock ridge northwards. The first narrow arête can be traversed or turned on a series of ledges
to the west, and broken blocks lead to a final short traverse to the summit over an exposed, narrow
ridge of very loose argillite – many parties stop at this point.
