From the Cameron Glacier.

SW South West Ridge
The South West Ridge can be reached via a couloir from the Cameron Glacier or from the lower valley leading to Peg Col. Travel is straightforward to Pt 2366 metres, but the ridge is narrow, tricky and exposed from there to Tent Peak.
Jack Hill, D Kett, December 1963
East Face 2-
From the valley leading to Peg Col, climb snowfields and gullies to a couloir, just north of the summit, that provides the best access to the ridge. The summit ridge has small towers and the last 20 metres is loose.
Bill Beaven, Earle Riddiford (descended), April 1947
