From the lower Hut Creek flats follow a large stream issuing from a gully under the South Face of Triangle. Climb the true right ridge of this gully for 100m. The ridge is quite exposed and steep with very thin tussock to hold onto, but eases off to tussock benches which are followed up and left to the south west ridge; on the far side easy scree leads all the way to the summit.
