Quickest access to 2428 is gained from Freds Stream. A snow filled gully angling up to the upper snowfields can be sighted from low in the valley and provides rapid altitude gain. Cross over a small shoulder and angle up the north east facing slopes to the summit.

Bush Stream provides rapid access to the bottom of the south face of Peak 2428m which is steep and broken. Follow snow gully right of central buttress. Above buttress move slightly left to gain deep narrow runnel and follow to exit 20 m right of summit. Cornice at summit can be bypassed on good steep rock.
