From the signposted track junction 400m north of Mangahuia highpoint, a poled route runs north-east towards Triangle Hut. The track drops gently to a broad saddle, before starting to climb towards the next highpoint. About 200m from the saddle the marked route to triangle swings abruptly west off the range and starts to sidle the face towards the spur which drops to Traingle Hut.
