On the East Face of Mt Haast, start right of the triangle (Little Big Wall). Best climbed after a good freeze and/ or a cycle of melting to get rid of any hang fire or loose wet avalanche danger. This is a steep solar aspect getting sun for most of the day, hence the name 'Hotline'. This route is as close to spur 3 (as per 2018 guidebook) as possible and is situated between route 11.81 and 11.83.

At least three variations exist, all commencing from the névé between Syme Ridge and Mt Dixon. Climb 400m of steepish ice and then, depending on conditions and inclination, either left through the ice bulge, directly up through the icecliff, or right via ice gullies through a rock band.
Mike Andrews, Colin Dodge, D Warren, Jan 1972.
From the summit of Mt Dixon follow the rotten rock ridge over towers, usually turning difficulties on the east side.
Harry Ayres, Bruce Gillies, Feb 1953.
The three peaks of Mt Haast are actually just off the Main Divide, at the head of the Fox Glacier.
