Mt Rolleston- Low Peak (via Rome ridge)

  • 4 hr – 5 hr
  • Medium/hard

Track starts off at SH73 (Coral track). Steep ascent through the bush line on a marked track leading you up onto Rome Ridge, which is no longer marked, yet obvious where to go due to sheer drops both sides of you. Mix of medium-hard climbing in last stretch, not recommended for newer climbers. Rocks can be very brittle in places. Very narrow ridge in some places with no room for error or slips.
