Just a short distance from Ruapehu Hut, at the bottom of The Gut and adjacent to the Haensli Face, are two small cirques with waterfall ice at their heads and ice smears on the periphery. Grid ref 312133. Both steep lead climbs and shorter boulder problems are possible early in the season – later, as skiers arrive, the skiﬁeld’s snow management tends to ﬁll the area with snow. Grades around WI2, 10–15m high.
