Route Climbed: Avalanche Peak Track Up, Scott's Track Down  Sucess!

Finally! I'd visited Arthur's Pass six times, for a total of twelve days over four trips to New Zealand waiting for it to stop pouring rain so I could do this hike. I wasn't dissappointed - it was beautiful! Spent some quality time with the keas on the summit.

Nice Tramp

Nice little tramp up to the summit via the Scott's track. Cloud hid the views a bit but got a few goo shots on the camera when the cloud parted. It took alot less time than expected (and advised by DOC). Arthur's pass is truly one of the most scenic places in NZ!

Route Climbed: Avalance Peak track up , Scott's track down Date Climbed: January 2004  Sucess!

Steep track, but shorter than expected, up and down

took me 4 1/2 hours. Very windy on the top, I was

nearly blown of the summit ridge.

Route Climbed: Scott's Track Date Climbed: March 05  Sucess!

A very nice tramp up Scott's track to the summit. We were lucky with weather and had splendid views of the Crow Glacier and Mt. Rolleston from the top. We made a weekend out of it and descended to the Crow Hut for a night before heading out to Klondyke corner. Great hike!
