CW Section - Mt Harper via Camp Spur


Mt Harper via Camp Spur

In honor of AP Harper as part of the NZAC 125yr celebrations we'll be attempting an ascent of Mt Harper (2222m) in Arthurs Pass National Park.

The plan is to leave Christchurch Saturday morning for Klondyke Corner, we'll walk up Turkey Flat past Carrington Hut to gain Camp Spur for a high camp (which should yield amazing views fingers crossed). Sunday morning drink your coffee as it'll be an Alpine Start for attempt at Mt Harper following the ridge.

This trip requires a good level of fitness with a pack on, comfortable with rock scrambling (will have a rope for the final step) and good with walking on rocky uneven terrain with potential exposure.

If you think this is a bit of you flick me an email

P.S. feel free to dress up like a mountaineer from 125yrs ago on this trip or lend me some :)
