A pretty phenomenal route, one you could do a bunch of ways in a bunch of conditions to mix it up some. Views throughout are spectacular. Traversed in 3 days from east to west with a side trip up Kaitiaki and a play on Ball Glacier, all through Alpine Recreation. Cold front blazing through led to some cracking sunsets and sunrises, a very windy ridgetop and fresh snow on the last day. Great experience all round.
Started solo. Met a couple locals the night before heading up the pass. Nice to have company. Erased all my photos accidently. Was I ever glad they had theirs. Thanks again guys. Finished hike solo from pass after staying a night in shelter near Glacier and road.
A three day crossing, including one day of practising and fun on the glacier, with Alpine Recreation. We started from the Tasman Valley. Wonderful trip!
Climbed with my wife Sonya on our honeymoon, starting from the Hooker Valley. Perfect weather with a camp right on the pass!
