Double Cone-Single Cone Traverse
2:1 $335 PER PERSON
The Big classic of the Southern Lakes district, this striking ridge is on every climbers tick list. Approached by the "shadow basin" and under the telecom tower. After this long walk the climb starts off with a long ledge systems that brings you to a ridge crest and a gut wrenching view down the west face.
From here its all on to the summit, long sections of pitched climbing on a knife edge ridge and some very exciting "au cheval" moves make this climb not for the faint of heart.
The route traverses all the way over both summits of double cone and to the top of single cone before descending the southern gullies.
This alpine day is suitable for climbers with a basic understanding of rope skills and a high level of fitness. It is possible for guests who do not have climbing experience to do the traverse however we require that they do a half day of training the day before their climb!
