Regular running route from home as a teenager. What a spot high above Dunedin. Longer runs to Swampy and the Silverpeaks, Mt Cargill and more. "Sea to Silverpeaks" is a superb guidebook.

Same deal as my Mt Arthur report

I have been up Avalanche numerous times (the date is rough). One memorable trip was up Avalanche and around to Bealey with Penny trip though a little hairy in a couple of places. Great place in winter if you take Scotts track.

Arthur, Mt / Mt Arthur

It was part of a 30 day circumnavigation of Kahurangi . Came up over Gordons Pyramid, picked up food drop on Mt Arthur ridge, to the peak with just a little snow slope at the end, then back down and around to Ellis Basin with the amazing cave map on the wall. Beautiful day.

yeah Arowhana's a fantastic and rugged little piece of sub alpine where you least expect it.

There is no signage or carpark, just drive until you see where to park and walk up the ridge, there is a track of sorts up the ridge. All sorts of potential for adventurous loops but most people will be going up and down.

There are a couple of places where it gets a little hairy, which would make it among the more dangerous peaks on your list.

Ran up Boulder Hill from the dry creek entrance the other day (late feb 09), its really pretty up there with views down the harbour and the bush is regenerating well on the alternative dry creek track.

Cargill, Mt / Mt Cargill: South Face

It was the 50th Anniversary of the climbing of Everest. My flatmate Tom and I decided to do our little bit to honour the legend, Sir Edmund. We suited up appropriately and headed for Bethune Gully. No tracks allowed, we ploughed into the undergrowth, douglas fir for a start then regenerating native scrub getting lower and lower as we climbed quickly. Full body cover was appreciated as we flung ourselves, or tore ourselves uphill. The summit was obtained after about an hour of consistent effort, and we were rewarded with full views of Blueskin Bay and the Otago Peninsula.
