Participant Information

The peak has significant exposure in places. You should be an experienced and confident scrambler who is able to negotiate well in difficult terrain.

Saturday outlook improved notably so trip moved up a day.

A helmet is mandatory. Can't guarantee we'll need crampons or an ice axe, however I think they would be prudent to bring. Rope is a handy option for the descent.

Expect a long, hard slog. The trip is shortened if we have a high-clearance 4x4 for the final bit of road. Prior to that point, we'll take separate vehicles. 

Roundtrip: ~10 km

Elevation gain: 1,271 m

High point: 2,431 m

Time: 9 1/2 hours

Meet at Boundary Road Chevron at 7, or along the way
