Overview

From Mt. Cook Village in New Zealand, the closest peak is Mount Sebastopol standing at 1,468m above sea level. If you like hiking and scrambling combined with awe-inspiring views, the Mount Sebastopol Day Climb makes a wonderful first ascent.  Achieve a total height gain of 750 metres or about 2,475 feet.

At the Alpine Guides base, you will meet your guide at 8.30. A maintained track to Red Tarns marks the route you take for the first 300 vertical metres before climbing to the summit via an unmarked route.

Uneven ground awaits at higher elevation so you need to be confident in navigating this terrain. You will need to use your hands in the scrambling section and encounter some ‘exposure’ as you get closer to the summit. Some sections may need a rope, which your guide will employ.

Your efforts will be rewarded with unimpeded views of the Tasman Valley and Lake Pukaki. From this perch, you’ll also glimpse the head of the Tasman Glacier across glaciated peaks. Kea make regular appearances at this elevation.

Snow appears on the upper route in the cooler months so you will be provided with crampons by your guide.

Follow the same route during descent. Those keen to have some adventure may want to try a scree-run. It usually takes 5 – 6 hours to complete this trip.
