From Sylvester Hut, follow the track west then south to cross Lake Sylvester outlet and continue a short distance along the southern shore where an obvious footpad leads between the two Sylvesters.
The footpad continues, climbing towards Iron Lake. As the Lake comes into view, head north to it's outlet. Cross and continue a short distance around the lake, then climb the obvious gut, cairned, to the tops.
Having attained the open ridge tops, continue to the saddle south of Ruby Lake and descend (through bog and Spaniard grass) to camp on at the far side of the lake.
The attached GPX shows a sidle from the previous saddle which is OK but also involves bog and Spaniard grass - probably better to stay on the ridge as long as possible.
