Climb the Scabbard Glacier to the col between Sword and Milne Peaks and follow the South
East Ridge to the top. The last 100 metres presents the best climbing.
The South East Ridge has also been approached from the Havelock River, beginning 600
metres up from Veil Bivouac. Steep scrub blends into good tussock benches on a spur south-east
of the marked 40-metre waterfall, leading to the Milne–Sword ridge
