Homestead Spur Route 1
0
Access via KOWAI RIVER This long waterless spur can be gained from near Swyncombe Farm, or at Orange Grove Saddle (800m, campsite here) which is reached via a spur on the south bank of Rokomaiwhaea Creek (locally known as Orange Grove Stream). Some short steep and rough sections. Traverse the subsidiary peak to the higher summit.
Snowflake Stream Route 1
0
Access via KOWAI RIVER Turn the first of three waterfalls with a steep scramble on the true right. 400m beyond the first major stream junction (campsite here on tussock terrace), climb a prominent north-west spur to the subsidiary peak. An enjoyable winter climb. Scree and tussock at the head of Snowflake Stream also gives a route.
