NE North East Couloir 2

Via HODDER RV. From the Staircase Stream junction continue up the Hodder, and climb the prominent couloir to a narrow col at the top. Beyond here, some parties may require a rope. A short steep descent and then a short traverse leads to a final steep climb to the very small summit. (via North ridge)

Via HODDER RV. This impressive rock ridge can be gained from near Muzzle Saddle, or else via a snow couloir. Good scrambling on steep rock.
