Thanks Simon I've been unblocked from ClimbNZ and can now post routes again using the link buttons you mentioned that oddly were never there until today. It's a pity this climb didn't make into Rob Frosts Mt Cook guidebook, however I left the direct start of it you to claim for yourself, it's a separate climb in itself and looks like some fun route to climb in rock shoes.

I'Il post the route pics on Facebook, because I can't get any links or clicks to work on this ClimbNZ page and haven't been able to for all of 10 years. In fact I was only given access to log into this site again in the last year or two. I can post messages but are denied access to posting anything starting new messages and reporting new routes.

Hi Peter
Under the picture at the top on left are a couple of buttons. Add a Place or Add a route. Click add a route. This adds a "child" to the parent ( in This case Lendenfeld). Fill in the blurb. Save. Afterwards you will need to put it in the right order as new children are put at bottom of the list. To do that go to the Parent ( Lendenfeld) above the picture and click on "children". You can drag them into order by the + on left. It is also possible to add a route here without going through the previous step. Make sure you save child order.

Probable new route between HB rib and NW rib.

This rock route takes the right hand visual profile as seen from Pioneer Hut.

Start up snow just left of bottom of rib and cut onto rock at any convenience. Follow the rib traversing along pinnacles, chevals, loose sections, until the obvious black triangular wall is attained. Traverse a rising ledge/ramp up the black wall from left to right. Finish straight up wide cracks or shallow chimney (crux 15). The route then merges with the upper section of the Hamilton Berry rib.

This is a challenging and interesting mountaineering route which requires some care, however it is not technical rock climb.
