From South Mathias River
0
Follow the South Mathias River, climbing scree and snow slopes immediately south of Bonds Peak. The bluffs are passed without difficulty – above the bluffs take a long snow slope to the summit rocks then up some tricky slabs to the top.

From the north side of the South Mathias River, climb gentle slopes to the base of an obvious couloir and follow this almost directly to the summit.

A small glacier gives easy access from the north. A straightforward scramble follows on rock and scree.
