Mountain
Altitude:

Access: 

Access from the Rees is through Rees Valley Station. Permission must be obtained from the station prior to the start of the trip. Detailed information can be obtained at https://www.reesvalley.co.nz/access/

An approach from the east or from the north is likely to be very difficult because of steep / overhung bluffs and very brittle rock barring access on the summit pyramid.

Standard Route (West Ridge)

The west ridge is easily reached from Twenty Five Mile Saddle. Access is through forest from Slip Flat then a long sidle on open tussock slopes, or via Twenty Five Mile Creek. Either way, you'll be on Rees Valley station land the whole way to the summit, and permission for access is required from the station (see notes above).
