A peak scramble on the southern end of Kangaroo Ridge. Climbing experience and equipment required. Continue reading
Park your car here for access to this scramble. There is a bootpath or trail that threads its way up some 1,500 feet before reaching Kangaroo Pass at 6671 feet. On the lower portion, cairns aid hikers, bringing you us to snowpack around 5,800 feet.
At the pass, ascend the southwest ridge, weaving your way between the northern and southern edges. At about 7,400 feet, swing around to the southern flank for a final ascent up a south-facing gully.
Careful on your return, descend the gully and work your way around to reconnect with Kangaroo Pass.
