A well travelled, poled route drops SSE from Armstrong Saddle towards Sunrise Hut, passing atop some spectacular sheer slips. It reaches the bushedge 100m before sunrise in a saddle, and then climbs slightly to reach the palatial Sunrise Hut, which is hidden from view on the eastern side of the spur.
