- Alpine (Mt Cook) 2-
Follow the Lyell Glacier moraine to a prominent gully leading to View Peak. Follow the gully until above the steep lower slopes, then traverse towards Goethe. Climb steep rock and snow to join the West Ridge – easiest west of Pt 2246 metres – then follow the straightforward rocky ridge to the summit. This ridge has been traversed from McCoy Col with much scrambling and rock climbing.
