Bradley, Mt / Mt Bradley bagged

After failing in the mist and drizzle in January, I have it in the bag on a clear Autumn day.  Climbed from Kaituna valley in 3 hours return.

After bagging Ben Ohau in the morning I drove to Mt Cook village and climbed Sebastopol.  Fantastic views again and some rock scrambling for added interest.  Summit gained in one hour from the bridge at the bottom of the Red Tarn stair-case.

Ben Ohau / Ben Ohau bagged - weather fantastic

A frosty start and a fantastically clear day.  I climbed the 1000m from the lake to the summit in an hour and a half.

I recommend gaiters be worn on this peak.  I got my socks covered in grass seed and then theres the Thistle, Speargrass and Matagouri.  The summit ridge has great views. 
This peak should be added to the list.
Also, Isthmus Peak and Lindis Peak in the Wanaka area!

Hi all,

Another great view and the afternoon cloud build up did not obscure the view from the top :)
Add it to the list!

Hi all,

A great view point above the Reefton area with a comfortable hut to stay in nearby.  I was able to watch Reefton getting rained on without getting wet up at Kirwans Hut :)
Add it to the list!
