Tragedy Col

Type: 
Alpine
Description: 
The preferred access route from the Dobson to the Hopkins Valley but named for a fatal accident on the Dobson slopes on 1 January 1947. Access from the Dobson Valley floor is made difficult by steep bluffs which are best negotiated at a point near the upper edge of the large fan which pushes the river over to the eastern side of the valley. The route begins opposite Waterfall Hut and the beginning of the route is marked by a series of cairns.
