After gaining permission from Otekaieke Station (03 4311 881) cross the Otekaieke River and take the farm track until it peters out.

Angle right to a gully leading towards the skyline.

Around the 1100m contour join the ridge to the false summit and then it’s on to Mt David proper.

There’s a large cairn at the summit to shelter behind.
