Cross the Harrison River above Wairereata Falls and follow the east bank until opposite the South Ridge of Te Hau. Steep climbing up a watercourse leads to the ridge between Benton Peak and Bowen Col. Continue past the col and over Mitis Peak to a gap in the ridge which is passed easily via ledges on the Harrison side. Regain the ridge and climb two steep rock steps to the summit.
