From Deepwater Basin either take a water taxi or kayak out into the Fiord following the edge of the shore till Sinbad gully is reached. From the beach at Sinbad Gully head up the broad ridge over recent tree fall (2014) until a faint trail through the bush is reached along with the crest of the ridge. Traverse over the Footstool and descend to a saddle, which provides the only water (puddles) and a couple of camp spots on route. Then follow the ridge as it climbs to the high peak.
