From the bushline on Travers Saddle - Sabine track, sidle on tussock and eventually rock debris ascending diagonally to a tussock or light scrub rib. Continue up this rib then diagonally north to a shoulder at about 1780m. This is to avoid the very steep country between 1400m and 1700m below the shoulder.
From the shoulder descend into a rocky basin (it may be easier to go further east than the route line on map shows) and sidle north, with a bit of up and down, to the bottom of the gully which leads to Gunsight Pass. Climb the broad and not-too-steep gully to the pass.
Most of this route is visible in the photo in book "The Fold of the Land - New Zealand's National Parks from the Air" by Lloyd Homer & Les Molloy, from which I got the idea to do the route.
