From the upper Vane Stream, climb above the Hazard Glacier to gain the Dainty. Cross and find a place to descend tot he Lornty. At Xmas 2009, there was a single snow slope about 100m wide between rock slabs; without the snow slope, it may have been impossible to descend the rock slabs. Once on the Lornty, ascend the glacier and through slopes to gain the Leeb Glacier. Ascend the glacier and gain the pt 2550 between Snow Dome & Mt Whitcombe. Both Mt Whitcombe & Snow Dome and easily reached from this point.
