The easiest descent from the summit of the mountain is via the South Ridge. It is also possible to scramble down (Grade 1) North Gully then Little Gully (shown on next page). South Gully can be descended but requires a couple of abseils from a precariously positioned belays and is not recommended. The famous North Ridge also makes a possible descent.
