Ascent Trip Report

A beautiful and mellow peak in a superb setting. I drove up to Snow Farm ($20 nzd toll) and set off in a blizzard for Kirtle Burn Hut, which I spent a comfortable night in. The morning brought pink hazy sunrise onto the Aspiring portion of the range, and I reveled in the view as I followed the rimy path up to the gentle peak. The summit is a large schist boulder with a dramatic panorama. I'd recommend this peak, one that is only ever explored by locals but has a unique aesthetic.
