From Stanleyvale hut follow the marked and benched fowlers pass track up to the top of fowlers pass.
From the top of Fowlers Pass, turn left and follow an old fence‐line to the top of Rabbit Hill‐ the first high point. Drop off the top of Rabbit Hill onto the scree slope, zig zagging your way down to the bottom (as yet, this route is not marked). The scree slope is very steep (see pictures below).

You will come out onto the main Fowlers – Stanleyvale track where Aniseed Creek meets the Stanley
