Porter's Pass summit
942m – 1,741m
Altitude change 799m

From the summit of Porter's Pass, climb the hillside to the north. There are numerous vague tracks near the bottom. Keep to the right, along the ridge, and eventually a clear track forms, winding through the scree. Two thirds of the way up, a false summit is reached. It's another 30 minutes or more to the top.

Foggy Peak • By matthew.

From the top are views along the the Torlesse Range, with Castle Hill Peak being a popular continuation. West is the Porter Heights skifield, and southwest is Lake Lyndon.

The climb up is about 1.5 to 2.5 hours, while the return is about 30 minutes to 1 hour.
