From the Waihopai valley, walk up Gosling Stream to Gosling Hut (6 bunks, standard, no mattresses). The stream forks about 1.2km upstream from the hut. The true right branch soon becomes rugged; bushcrash past a waterfall on true right, following a cairned trail, into upper basins and on to the summit. The true left branch is easily followed through open forest and across large tussock and scree basins to the summit ridge.
East Ridge 2+

From the Waihopai valley, walk up Gosling Stream to Gosling Hut (6 bunks, standard, no mattresses). From Gosling Hut, continue upstream for about 1.2 km and take the true left fork. Once on the ridge, a deep cleft and gendarme at about 1880m requires a rope, but this could be avoided by climbing a steep gully from the north-east basin.
West Ridge 1

From the Leatham Valley head up Boulder Stream. At about 3.3km from the mouth of Boulder Stream, on its north bank, is an obvious side stream, which leads to a low saddle into upper Station Creek (best to avoid the lower creek). Good campsite here. Gain the long rocky ridge, crossing three minor bumps, leading to the summit slabs.
