Mt Crosscut

(32 routes)

Mt Crosscut’s four peaks have a variety of climbing close to Homer Hut. In summer the peaks are good long moderate alpine routes; in winter, the southern aspects in Cirque Creek hold the test pieces of Darrans winter climbing. The East Pk can also be reached by long routes from the Marian valley.
