Easy approach from the South Huxley but steep and shattered rock near the summit.

Ironlatch is a 200m high route at grade 16 on a rock pillar, left side of NW face of Temple Peak 2289m. Bill describes the pillar as 'stunning' when seen from the South Huxley valley.

Ascend the steep cirque wall at the head of the valley then strike up towards the summit. Excellent quality schist provides pleasant scrambling until near the ridge crest.
To the ridge, Nola Bishop, Murray Cassidy, Jim McFarlane, April 1950

Just over the hill at the head of the accessible North Temple. The winter potential in this steep corner has been noticed for a while, and Kester’s comment “a great climb with an exciting first pitch followed by a short pillar then eighty metres of climbing of lower angle with some steeper bulges” suggests it easily met their expectations.
Kester Brown and Jono Clarke, Winter 2006
