From Boulder Forks Hut, walk up the streambed and into Kroshen Stream. Bypass a waterfall on the true right. There is a good campsite on a tussock shelf at 1100m, with a great view of steep slabs on the south face of the summit pyramid (probably unclimbed, and could be a project for keen alpine rock jocks). Climb scree on the south-west face and up a short rocky gut to the ridge. Turn a rock step on the western side, via a narrow exposed ledge (difficult if snow covered) or else an awkward chimney.
