Unknown Stream

(0 routes)



From the true right of the Wilberforce River, cross to the true left of Unknown Stream where it abuts
bluffs and follow it along the straightforward lower reaches. About 4 km beyond Unknown Hut the
river forks, the northern branch draining Unknown Col and the south branch draining a rugged section
of the Rolleston Range. Travel up the north branch follows a narrow valley, subject to rock fall,
which has three waterfalls part way up. Negotiating the third waterfall requires a rock climb on the
true right. This waterfall has turned some parties back and a rope may be needed. In early season the
waterfalls are buried in avalanche debris and travel is straightforward.
