Homestead Spur Route I 1
0
This long waterless spur can be gained from near Swyncombe Farm, off Inland Kaikōura Road. Alternatively, from the Kowhai River take a spur on the south bank of Rokomaiwhaea Creek (locally known as Orange Grove Stream) to Orange Grove Saddle (800m, campsite here). Some short steep and rough sections. Traverse the subsidiary peak to the higher summit.
Snowflake Stream Route I 1
0
From the junction with the Kowhai River, turn the first of three waterfalls in Snowflake Stream with a steep scramble on the true right. After the 640m contour (campsite here on tussock terrace on true right) climb a prominent spur to Pt 991. An enjoyable winter climb. Scree and tussock at the head of Snowflake Stream also gives a route.
