From the Whitcombe Valley, reasonable tussock access to the gravel basins under the Main
Divide exists around Cap Creek and Molar Stream. From the permanent ice at the head of
Neave Creek, pick a line through bluffs (crux) to reach the West Ridge between 2000 and
2100 metres. Other routes onto the ridge from lower down should also work and may be easier.
