An ascent of Black Peak (Wānaka area) from the Treble Cone car park along the ridge and back. Travel to camp at Glendhu Bay on Friday 16 Feb. after work. Climb on Saturday and back to campsite. Possible morning rock climb on Sunday before heading back to Dunedin (or elswhere). This is a longish day at 10-12 hours return to carpark. Less if you are fit.

I have put the following weekend aside as a back up in case of bad weather. (23-25 Feb)

Getting There

Travel by car on Friday evening to Glendhu Bay to camp. Return home on Sunday 18 Feb.

What to Expect

A long hot day with plenty of up and down. Steepish at the end however I believe there are some fixed lines that can be clipped into. Also some exposed ridge on way that also has fixed line. 

Possible Hazards

Rockfall - helmet required
Fall hazard - ability to move safely over rough ground


Lots of water
Sun protection
Possibly harness and attachment line for fixed ropes. 
Good footwear
