CW Section - Traverse of Mt Cassidy - Blimit - Temple
A reasonably straightforward winter trip with spectacular views, ideal for those who have recently completed a beginners snowcraft course.
There is some steep ground so care will need to be taken, but it is an ideal opportunity to put into practice your ice axe and, conditions permitting, cramponing skills.
The plan would be to stay at Arthur's Pass Lodge Friday night, up early Saturday morning to traverse the two peaks, descend into Temple Basin and walk back to the village. Return to Christchurch in the evening.
