The steep spur opposite Banfield Hut provides a direct route to the plateau north-east of Bastion Peaks. Alternatively, travel up Jagged Stream towards the Assault Glacier and traverse below the rock face to the basin. A cone of scree leads to a prominent couloir (watch for rock fall). From within the couloir, move right above bluffs and onto the North East Ridge, which offers easy climbing to the summit.
