  • Water Ice WI4

Six steep pitches of pumpy technical climbing. The fifth pitch is a 45m vertical ice column. It may need a good hard winter to for the water ice pitches to form and be joined up. Rap the route or descend down the steep gully at the true left hand end of the lower Cirque Creek wall. Second ascent by Daniel Joll, Jono Clarke et al in the 2010s, reporting 'Canadian WI4,' meaning very steep and quite difficult, and apparently not remotely comparable to most other routes of the same grade in New Zealand.
