Following on from the Guthega Trig, this route continues along the ridge line towards the The Rolling Ground.
You can follow the rock outcrops until you attain and maintain around 1920 metres, turning at this altitude west towards Consett Stephen Pass. Once at the pass, on a clear day you will have views north towards Mount Gungartan and even Jagungal.
As you round south to ascend the main range ridge toward Mount Tate, be mindful of significant snow cornice formations. Once reaching the top of Mount Tate enjoy the often stunning views south east towards the Crags, Mount Twynam, Carruthers Peak and see if you can seperate your Mount Townsend from your Mount Kosciuszko.
