From Falls Hut head up the Routeburn to the first foot bridge you encounter. on the true right side of the foot bridge a stoney water coarse comes down the hill, parallel to the bluffs above. Leave the track and follow the water coarse to the south climbing up the hill past the bluffs. The ground trail swings northeastwards and goes past the big tarn on the map and over Point 1224. There are spectacular views here out over Routeburn Flats, much better then from the hut below.
