 Start up the tussock and bracken slopes directly behind Raspberry Hut. After about one hour the ridge becomes well defined and eventually leads to a col (1750m) on the Shotover-Matukituki divide. From this col follow a deer trail south for several hundred metres, until the south ridge is crossed and a prominent snowfield on the South Face is reached. The snowfield is then climbed to the summit. This route would take about six to seven hours from Raspberry Flat.
