A lot of people are surprised at the amount and quality of Island climbing. That's why I've started to work through a cross section of peaks for SP. There's 10 peaks and one range on there so far with more coming all the time as I find the time.

The mountains are not high. The highest is the Golden Hinde at ~2,200m. But they're extremely rugged with more technical that non-technical summits. Because of a strong maritime influence and heavy winter precipition, glacial tongues can often get as far down as 1400-1500m. Add to this long approaches often through dense bush and often starting from only a few hundred metres and it's easy to see why they're not everyone's cup of tea.

Come and see for yourself!
