South West Arête

Type: 
Alpine
Description: 
From the central Foster Glacier take a snow route past Mt Marchant to gain the south west arête and from there, up to the summit. Sixty four years later, a better approach appears to be via the snow slopes of the Foster Glacier aiming north of Mt Browning, to reach the main Divide, then easy travel south along the Divide to the summit.
