Sidling north from the Temple-Ahuriri pass, dropping slightly as you go leads across stable screen faces below pt 2058 to the ridge just east of V-Notch pass. Drop to the pass staying on scree south of the summit rocks - I crossed some 20m east of the V notch itself.
Drop into the head basin. The creek becomes impassable, so sidle west onto good open tussock spurs. The eastern valleyside is also passable but very scrubby lower down - I don't recommend the experience.
