Turner Pk

(3 routes)

Proud Peak is essentially an outlier of Turner Peak and it seems odd that they are named separately. Here, and in the Aoraki Tai Poutini guide (2018) they are treated as one peak.

North Ridge II 2
0
Straightforward rock scrambling and snow slopes. Climbing on the northwest face is also possible.
Darby Thomson, Samuel Turner, February 1913
West Ridge II 3

An enjoyable rock climb from the scree slope above the Hooker Glacier. The upper section of the ridge can also be accessed from the lower Mona Glacier.

South Face II 4 WI2

Several routes about 250m long, which are easily accessible from Ball Pass. Most routes involve a combination of steep snow and up to WI2+ ice. Harder variants with WI3+ steps at the start are possible. Generally steep at first then onto 60 degree neve ramps with some small steps, 70-80 degrees max. Climb when conditions are fat, rock gear would be nix. Named Névé Névé Land by Jaz Morris in 2013 on what he thought was the first ascent.
