For all its popularity the peak sees relatively few ascents. Kayaking across to the base in the early mornings makes Mitre Peak a unique climbing experience found nowhere else in New Zealand. Well worth the adventure.

Access: 

Be aware that a considerable day-breeze picks up on the water by mid-afternoon. The Fiord becomes choppy and unforgiving.

  From Deepwater Basin either take a water taxi or kayak out into the Fiord following the edge of the shore till Sinbad gully is reached. From the beach at Sinbad Gully head up the broad ridge over recent tree fall (2014) until a faint trail through the bush is reached along with the crest of the ridge. Traverse over the Footstool and descend to a saddle, which provides the only water (puddles) and a couple of camp spots on route. Then follow the ridge as it climbs to the high peak.

J Dennistoun, 1910.
