Via Rianbow River. Follow an old cut track on the true left of Tanekaha Creek into clearings, and then up the broad ridge. Steep gullies and interesting rock scrambling leads to a difficult notch on the ridge. Abseil 6m into the notch or gain it via the southern slopes and a steep gut. Continue beyond the notch to the summit. The peak can also be climbed via gullies on the north face.
