Intermittently marked traplines climb from Breaksea Sound (Broughton Arm) to Mt Anderson.
The crux to this route is the crossing of the stream 1km NNE of pt1336. Climb the spur to its east on the obvious deer trail until you see 2 pink flagging tapes at 480m. Sidle west towards the waterfall which you can hear. Descend the slope right next to the waterfall to its base. Cross the creek below the fall. Hug the base of cliffs on the other side for 40m or so until a steep gut with a good deer trail leading up it climbs through the bluff system becoming a spur immediately next to the waterfall. Climb 40m or so onto terraces above. Sidle 1km west keeping on terraces until you pick up the base of the spur climbing west before swinging south the Mt Anderson. The route if marked from the creek 2km NE of Anderson and cut from approx the 700m contour. A brief follow-your-nose section leads through clearings on gentle slopes / terraces at around 800m before picking up another cut track at the base of scrubby bluffs behind.
