Veteran Peak was the last peak above the Milford Road in the Cleddau to get a first ascent. As early as the 1950s local climbers had noticed there was a peak, not visible from the road, on a hard to 'access' section of ridge. Forty years later the first ascent (and traverse) involved two days from Homer Hut, and the first full traverse from Ada to Homer Saddle. The west ridge is mainly a walk on solid slabs, the east ridge a steeper scramble.
