The Paske Saddle is but one of several routes to reach Paske Hut. Pat Barrett suggests three other routes
Directly south of the hut stands Turk Ridge, a high rugged dividing range between the Paske and upper Wairau, which has several crossing points at high cols to the Wairau, the best being just east of spot height 2009m.

High, gaunt mountains are all around and some will carry snow well into summer.
Start the route at Lake Tennyson Campsite and head up the eastern side of the lake to cross the Crimea Range into the Wairau at the pass between Mt Maling and Crystal Peak....
