Ayres Ridge

Type: 
Alpine
Description: 
An unrelenting ridge between Mt Haidinger and Douglas Peak, with many rock towers varying in soundness. The final rise to the summit of Douglas is probably the hardest section and can be avoided on the east. In 1977, Dave McNulty described this as the most technically sustained section of the Elie to Harper Saddle traverse, a view affirmed by Phil Penney and Allan Uren during their 1990 winter traverse.
