Route DescriptionThe Avalanche Peak Track is the more steeper one. You pick up the track just behind the DOC centre, crossing a small bridge over the Avalanche Creek. The track takes you through the vegetation on a steep hillside passing some nice waterfalls. The bushline is left at 1,200 m. Up here you follow the ridge straight to the peak.
On top of the summit you have a great view of the neighbouring Mount Rolleston (2, 275 m) with the Crow Glacier which raises majestically, the Mount Bealey on the opposite side and the Bealey valley.
Expect around 1,5 hours time to the bush line and 1,5-2 hours from the bush line to the summit.
