Access

Take the track to Homer Saddle from the tunnel then follow the ridge to Moir for about 45min to an hour. The ridge is very exposed with moderately difficult scrambling – it has been known to reduce climbers to crawling on all fours in places. The ridge breaks into a broad scree slope which descends below the west face of Moir’s Mate.
