An old benched pack track zigzags easily west to the saddle with the Dingle, starting 400m south of Ahuriri Base Hut. The track is signposted. From the saddle the track becomes a poled route which sidles SW down the dingle faces to the next spur south, which it then follows steeply down to the valley floor. Top Dingle Hut is on the bushedge on a terrace 300m to the south.
