South West Ridge 2

Climb the small tributary of the Havelock Glacier, avoiding seracs, aiming for open snow terraces above. From here gain the broad ridge of the Main Divide north of Pt 2140 metres. Follow the Divide, negotiating several rock and snow towers near the summit.

Havelock Face
0
From the lower Havelock Glacier follow a glacial lead around a large buttress, and then follow its north branch directly to the summit. This route has deteriorated since it was first climbed, leaving remnant icecliffs in place of continuous snow. The route is now very difficult.
