Two Thumb Range


Many peaks of the southern Two Thumb Range are best reached from a camp in North East Gorge Stream, but some of the more prominent peaks such as Alma and The Thumbs are frequently reached from the Rangitata side via Alma Stream and Black Birch Creek. Alma Col (2139m) and Cassandra Col (2307m) allow access from the east to the more westerly peaks and routes. The southern Two Thumb Range is generally free of snow in summer and approaches involve relentless scree slogs to reach the rocky ridges that lead to the summits. Some snow coverage usually provides nicer access.
