From upper Whale stream, cross the glacier for an ascent of the East face. Fluke is a 450m grade 14 climb. Take the ramp on the left centre of the overhanging face, climb under chockstone to reach easier ground, follow central rib on good quality rock to the summit. Some level sections en route. Crux grade 14. Descent is to the south on the Dobson side of the divide, then back into upper Whale Stream.
