 A classic route. Reach the Shelf Glacier from the Bracken as described in East Face. Alternatively, from the Wilkinson Valley, climb the lower section of the ridge keeping to the McKenzie Glacier side. There are five rock steps and gendarmes, mainly on firm rock, and where the climbing becomes too severe alternatives usually exist on the McKenzie Glacier side. The final rock section leads to the junction with the North West Ridge and a traverse over the north summit to reach the high peak.
