Follow the great track to above the bushline. The track & markers continue past the bush. line until the prominent east ridge is in site. For easy access to Shrimpton, DONT follow the ridge on the right (as you are walking up) to the top. Traversing across the top is possible but requires some confident scrambling. Sidle left (as you are walking up), below the prominent east ridge, across to the basin of Shrimpton. Many variations of getting to the basin are possible, don't sidle too high or you may get bluffed out. From the basin, there is easy access to the top. When ascending, stay closer to the prominent east peak side. Return same way.
