- Alpine (Mt Cook) 2+
The first ascent party camped on the Nansen névé and crossed the west ridge of Cassino to access the Gino Watkins Glacier. The descent into the Gino Watkins was particularly steep. From theGino Watkins Glacier climb the west face of Pt 2543 metres to access the Main Divide southwest of Mt Moffat. The summit ridge was largely sidled on the left, returning to the Divide just below the top for a final arête. Reported as scrambling, with the odd pitch along the Main Divide.
