From the Whataroa Glacier sidle steep slopes, best under snow, to a rib off Whataroa Peak, and
cross the snow gully beyond. Three rope-lengths on poor rock lead to the col between Tohunga
and a sharp subsidiary of Whataroa Peak. A rock outcrop on the summit ridge can be traversed
low on the Whataroa side. A reasonable route in suitable snow conditions, but otherwise pretty
tricky. This party descended the obvious snow gully directly back to Ice Lake, which they don’t
recommend.
