From the lower reaches of the Ramsay moraine the route takes a fairly prominent buttress
running directly to the low peak of Mt Whitcombe. Start on easy scree ledges which become
progressively steeper with height – the last 60 metres below the summit is almost vertical. The
rock is extremely rotten and subsequent rock fall has altered the route. This line has not been
repeated due to its objective danger.
