Rock and Pillar via ridge south of Six Mile Creek

Published by under Bus Trips,Trampers

2-3+ hours on foot.

Climbs 3300 feet up the eastern face from Glencreag Station up a leading ridge south of SIx Mile Creek. This is the most direct approach (foot only). Tall tussock, some scrub and alpine herbfields are traversed.

The route is mared the entire way either by orange metal standards or hardwood snowpoles. The snowpoles have reflectorised patches. There are four solar-powered navigation lamps on the upper section.

5.8km north of the Middlemarch store there is a DoC sign at the junction of McKinnon Road and SH 87. THere is vehicle access to a car park.
