This is a really worthwhile walk with amazing views over Fox Glacier and out to the coast. However, it is increadibly steep and does require a really early start and a pocket of fine West Coast weather to ensure that you get to see the awesome views!

Straight up the hill from SH6. It’s a bit of a gut buster, but well worth the effort if you get there before the clouds come in. Some amazing views.
