Mt Strauchon is most frequently climbed by gaining height along the Main Divide from Brodrick Pass until rocky bluffs force climbers onto the south east slopes. Alternative acess is across the McKenzie Creek face then upwards on solid rock and snow filled gully to reach a point 150m east of summit. The route joins 4.15 and requires a delicate traverse across the final 150m of ridge to the high point.
