CW Section - Pioneer Hut 3000m Peak Challenge


Pioneer Hut located at the head of the Fox Glacier is the ideal base camp to tackle some of NZ's large mountains.  Based from one of the highest alpine huts in NZ the primary objective of this trip will be to summit some of the 3,000m peaks of the Main Divide such as Lendenfeld, Glacier, Haidinger, Haast, Douglas and Tasman and is a perfect trip for those climbers looking to add to their list of big mountain summits.

In order to save time and avoid the need for a 2,000m climb from Fox Glacier, a chopper will be used in and out of Pioneer Hut costing approx $300 per person depending on the number of climbers interested.

This climbing camp will require confidence on steep slopes, solid rope skills and a good ice axe / cramponing technique. 

All welcome.
