The track climbs west from Sterns Saddle following the ridgeline through manuka and beech. At the first peak (Maminga) it sidles the open northern face on claypan and gravel as it climbs to the summit, but beyond returns to the bush / ridgeline for the remainder of the trip. The turnoff to Rocks Ahead is signposted. At this junction a signposted poled track also drops 150m SE to where BAck Ridge Biv sits on the bushline below.
