Mt Alpha/Roys Peak - which to include?
« on: May 31, 2008, 09:20:50 AM »
Mt Alpha is quoted in Day Walks in New Zealand (Shaun Barnett, Craig Potton Publishing 2007) as a long 10-11 hour day tramp. An alternative is the 5-7 hour return trip to Roys Peak. The journey beyond Roys Peak to Mt Alpha is a unmarked route. Both are accessed from the Wanaka - Mt Aspiring Rd, a few kilometres out of Wanaka.

Have you walked to either Mt Alpha or Roys Peak? Which do you think should be on our Peak Bagging list?? Is the travelling beyond Roys Peak suitable for the 'average tramper'?
