“Beautiful alpine scenery with a spectacular view of Lake Rotoiti.”— Josh Rosen
After the climb, you emerge on the western ridgeline and follow this to Relax Shelter. From here, you can leave the track and explore more of the ridgeline headed toward Lake Angeles, or you can continue on the circuit along the southern face of the mountain with some incredible views of the lake on your left at the saddle.
After 20 minutes or so, you'll arrive at Bushline Hut – a great place for lunch or a snack with nice views of the southern arm of Lake Rotoiti and the St. Arnaud Range. From there it is a steep, winding, and exposed descent back to the carpark. This run is well worth the effort and provides beautiful mountain and lake views for your efforts.
