Mount Stewart/Stuart, weekend 10/11 March (Friday night walk in required) To avoid any confusion about which Mount Stewart/Stuart in Arthurs Pass is the objective for this trip, we will aim to climb both peaks. On the Friday night we will walk into camp on grassy flats near the Crow-Waimakariri confluence. On Saturday we will get up early and attempt Mount Stewart from the Crow River, via the east face (dropping off the north-east ridge to do so), before walking out to spend Saturday night at the CTC Hut in Arthurs Pass Village. On Sunday we will attempt Mount Stuart via the Pegleg Creek Route, descending via Hills Peak. Mount Stewart will be the primarily objective, and will be attempted on the Sunday instead if conditions require. Please feel free to ask the trip leader if you have any questions about the difficulty of these routes. It is unlikely ice axe and crampons will be required, but an assessment of conditions will be made the week of the trip. It is also unlikely a rope will be required for either peak, though we may take one anyway. The trip will be rescheduled if the forecast is poor.
