|Mike and I climbed the SE face of Mt Speight, a mountain up the Waimak near Arthur's Pass.
Possibly the hardest alpine climb I've done! Overall it was a fairly relaxed 3 day trip though, with tea breaks en-route. The approach up Harper creek and the steep snow slope to the ridge is easy. We descended the spur between Harper creek and Greenlaw creek, which was ok to descend, but the bush would be a bit thick to ascend through.|
