The west ridge is easily reached from Twenty Five Mile Saddle. Access is through forest from Slip Flat then a long sidle on open tussock slopes, or via Twenty Five Mile Creek. Either way, you'll be on Rees Valley station land the whole way to the summit, and permission for access is required from the station (see notes above).

A good viewpoint reached easily from old Shelter Rock Hut site via the leading ridge or from the north branch of Twenty-Five Mile Stream, the best travel being on the true right until above the waterfall and then via the leading ridge.
