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.
