We decided to take the short route to get to the Mary Barclay summit. This moderate scramble route required a waist deep river crossing and some bushwhacking for the first 1km of so. We were the only people that we saw the entire day. The trail is not very well cut and seems to disappear at times. The last 150m or so ranges from moderate to difficult scrambling with some pretty good exposure at times. The trail is a difficult hike to easy scramble otherwise.
