Castle Hill, New Zealand

Hike Mt. Cheeseman

9.9 Miles Total - 4265.1 ft gain -

Originally added by Tobin Akehurst

An off-trail route to a not-often visited, 2,000m summit. Awesome views! 

Follow the Hogsback Track until you reach the clearing just after the Waterfall Creek crossing. Hike through the clearing towards the toe of Mt Cheeseman's east ridge.

Work your way up the ridge by linking a network of tussock slopes, ledges, scree slopes snow patches and crumbly rock. Eventually you will reach the second, lower summit. Carefully navigate the final ridge to the summit, it can become confusing when buried in deep snow and there is some fall potential.
