Ice King Tops

(1 route)

A small range running West-Nor-West off the main divide South of Mt Pollux and the Donald River, dropping into the Waiatoto at its Western end. Commonly referred to as the Ice King Tops (technically as per the topo map, a small remnant glacier on the S side of the range)

Type: 
Range
Walk time: 
2+ days
Access: 

From the Donald River and/or glacier (via the Waiatoto River), or from Pearl drop Ice (via the Wilkin or Waiatoto River). To gain Pearl Drop Ice from the Wilkin, proceed via either the (aptly named) Chasm Pass, and down short but awkward-looking slabs to Pearl Drop, or circuitously via the North Glacier of Betsy Jane Peak, the Bell glacier, and an awkward, loose, semi-technical slab descent from the base of the E Ridge of Stocking Peak.
