Dun Fiunary

(5 routes)

On the summit of Dun Fiunary I had small capsules from Otago University Physics Department for a project on UV rays. The sealed capsules had to be left on the summit and retrieved 6 weeks later. I climbed the mountain at least 10 times, by at least 4 different routes, usually alone, though sometimes with Peter Ellen. Norman Hardie, 1992.

Quickest access to Dun Fiunary from the west appears to be via Stewart Stream. At about 1200m altitude a spur leads to the outlier to the west of the high peak. Continue along a broad ridge to reach the summit.

Climb the obvious couloir in centre of the south face. First pitch 45 m of steep and thin ice, more moderate climbing beyond that pitch. A couple of steeper ice steps before the gully that reaches the ridge 20m from the summit.
