|A huge icefall above the route. In this point route must be passed during the night due to ice avalanche hazard.|

|The last 50 to 100 metres is pitched climbing, on 40° to 45° ice up to the base of the Summit Rocks. To reach the Linda Shelf the “Gun Barrels” must be traversed, and on the shelf itself, the “Mini Gun Barrels” crossed. Both areas are subject to danger from falling ice debris. Steady, rapid movement is required in these places.|
2 650 m / 8 694 tf
|The Linda Glacier is relatively low-angled. Up to the Linda Shelf there is some objective hazard from ice cliffs on Mt Silberhorn. A steady and efficient pace must be maintained to minimize the risk from ice fall.|

|This is an alpine serviced 33-bunk hut in the Aoraki/Mount Cook area.|
Charter flight to Plateau Hut (2500 m).
The easiest way from Mount Cook Village is to take a ski-plane or heli to the Grand Plateau where Plateau Hut is situated.
Summit day demands an alpine start (01:00 am) due to ice avalanches along the route. Due to this issue you must reach the base of the Summit Rocks just after dawn.
Egress from the mountains.
Two means of egress are available at the end of the trip: walking or flying out. Flying out is the most common choice. Please - ALWAYS BUDGET FOR A FLIGHT OUT, even if you want to walk.
