Summary

Perhaps the most accessable ice routes in NZ

Description

Wye Creek has a number of decent ice and mixed climbs, from WI2-5 and M6-10.

Approach

Access via the Remarkables ski field car park. If the lift attendants feel sorry for you (and there isn't a big queue) they might let you grab a seat on the Alta ski lift without a pass. From the top of the lift, head over the saddle and once you're over, turn south to drop into the Wye Creek valley. Follow the creek down until you see the ice on your right. 2-3 hours on foot, but snow shoes or BC skis are the way to go.

Where to stay

Camping is possible within a few hundred metres of the crag, close to the creek.
