Navagation on this ridge is difficult and good knowledge of area is needed along with usual gps/map/compass etc. The knife edge ridge is great fun and comparable to logans in degree of difficulty. Exposed and juggy scrambling. Hardest bit is downclimbing off the knife edge ridge where it ends. The knife edge ridge is at beginning of ridge not too far off the peasents (south) summit track. After the knife edge ridge that lasts for a few hundred metres the route is terrible. It becomes very scrubby and featureless with little to no track until near the top where two steep rock outcrops are found. This is where you will find the last tricky scrambling sections. Ridge tops out not too far from Old Hut site. Actually knife edge ridge 5 star Everything else on ridge 2 stars and hardly worth doing.
