From Aranga Hut, the cut marked DOC track continues west onto flat tops of pt1406, a poled route continuing as far as the bushedge on the western side. Here the track enters private land and is no longer maintained by DOC. A roughly marked route continues west over the saddle to pt1396, dropping and sidling the northern face for the last 200m.
