Up the Mawson Glacier to the Divide pass at 2250 metres, then continuing over White Pyramid and the South Ridge. This climb was done in good spring snow conditions as a three-day Labour Weekend trip from Wellington ; attempts en route to hop ice floes along the lake edge failed, with a dunking for one party member.
