Via Freds Stream 1
From the head of Freds Stream follow the tussock slopes up onto the upper shelf and remnant glacier, and proceed directly to the saddle. The terrain is steeper on the western sides of this saddle than occurs on Jamieson Saddle. Best descent line on the Dobson side appears to be on the true right of the stream which is gorged near bushline.
First ascent unknown
Dobson Valley Stream 1
200m lower than Jamieson Saddle, but the stream leading to the saddle is steep sided near the Dobson. Easiest travel is on the true right of the stream.
First crossing unknown.
