Begin by climbing the North East ridge from Pearson Saddle before sidling across snow slopes on the Matukituki face to gain the South East ridge via a steep rock couloir. This ridge then leads up to a rock step and the final steep snow slope below the summit. This ridge can be easily gained from the Volta Glacier.
