Dragonfly Peak

(1 route)

The name, one of several in the East Maukituki with aeronautical connotations, commemorates a Dragonfly aircraft that went missing without trace, possibly in the Mount Aspiring area in 1962. The first recorded ascent of the peak was made by Paul Powell and Bruce Moore in March 1962, from the South Albertburn Saddle.

  From Junction Flat cross the East Matukituki and follow the marked track up through the bush on the north side of Hester Pinney Creek. Above the bush easy tussock slopes lead around to the South Albertburn Saddle. From the saddle follow the straightforward tussock and rock of the North Ridge to the summit. This would take about seven to eight hours from the river.
