Description Suggest change

A long wandering arête with stunning views. On a clear day you can see Mt Ruapehu.

Pitch 1
Follow the bolts up the wandering arête. Variation: Can lead Sunset Ledge (Trad 14/5.7) instead of P1 as an easier option.

Pitch 2
Start to the left, then move back right to the arête. Technical moves for the grade all the way to the top. Bolted belay in the shade amongst the foliage.

Location Suggest change

Towards the end of the point. Starts on the arête immediately right of Sunset Ledge.

Protection Suggest change

Pitch 1 - 9 bolts
Pitch 2 - 7 bolts
Bolted belays at the top of both pitches.
