Beetham Crag

(7 routes)

The Beetham Crag is about 200m above the Beetham Hut site and south a little, overlooking the Tasman Glacier. The crag was developed in the early eighties. Nick Banks established a few routes in the summer of 1983 and later that season participants on a guides course added more routes. Apparently there are about a dozen routes but records are sketchy, despite this the rock is superb and the setting is without compare.
