  Short snow climb from Waimakariri Col. A traverse to, and a descent off, CARRINGTON PEAK can also be achieved. The icecap of MT ARMSTRONG can be quite unstable at times, as can the glacier descending on to Waimakariri Col.

  Long climbs that can be done by fit parties in a day from Otira. The Rolleston River Track is followed to where it leaves the scrub and crosses the river. A climb west is then made to the spur that separates the Rolleston River from the stream draining Lake Florence. The spur is followed all the way for the climb of MT ARMSTRONG.
