Follow the south branch of the Rainbow River to a good campsite at 1470m, near a small waterfall on the true right. Scramble up dry watercourses, steep carpetgrass and easy rock to the range north of Paske. The final ridge is interesting.

From Paske Hut cross the creek and follow it upstream, then angle upwards through open forest into a tussock basin above a waterfall. Either climb open slopes on the south face to the summit pyramid or, from an obvious saddle, climb the interesting south-east arête.
