Hospital Flat North

Part of

The Yang to the south’s Yin. As the seasons flow, and the vitamin D supplement of the south veers towards overdose, climbers natually gravitate to the cooler options across the road.

From Wānaka, take the Mt Aspiring Road for 20 mins/17km. After you leave the lake and crest a rise, a green flat surrounded by crags comes into view – Hospital Flat. Park at the second turn-out on the left, 1km past the West Wānaka Road turnoff. The walls are across the road.
