A multiple peak traverse with difficult scrambling where a fall could be fatal making this a long strenuous day so moderate to fast scrambling is needed.


Niblock is a difficult scramble and Mount Whyte is an above average difficult scramble and needs route finding, so it's necessary to have done previous difficult Kane scrambles in order to attend. Good fitness is needed to keep a moderate to fast pace, no slow people please.
