From Nolans Hut in the Perth, access Hughes Creek and follow it up. Travel is reasonably good,
but there is a gorge to sidle between the 600- and 700-metre contours and a rougher bouldery
section below the forks at 760 metres. Continue south and head up a side creek in open going
through scattered scrub from I35 063553 / BW17 964 936. This creek splits into two tiny parallel
creeks draining from the peak. Continue south-east up the face to the summit. If traversing
between Tohunga and Whataroa Peaks, a short vertical section of difficult rock east of the col
between the peaks would probably require a rope.
