Several broken sections – above Seddon Col, above the Ivory Glacier and along Sawtooth Ridge – make the Lange Range quite rugged in places. As on the Bloomfield Range, much of the crest is crushed schist, but in some places the rock is better. It’s a great place for those with some alpine confidence to play around. Hermann Henry Lange was a sailor, miner and shipwright who worked as a builder on the West Coast in 1867.
