The Tusk is easily approached along the ridge from Raged Peak and the Reid–Stag Creek forks.

Dickie Ridge 1+
0
This long ridge can be traversed from Dickie Spur Hut to the Tusk but the rock is loose, there are pinnacles to negotiate and parts of the ridge are quite exposed
From Top Tuke Hut 1+

Head up valley from the hut and take the true-left lower fork that is closest to the 1020-metre contour. With snow in the gully, this offers reasonable travel to near Dickie Ridge, when access to the gentler upper snow slopes can be gained.
