The Grand Traverse of Single & Double Cone is a steep committing alpine ridge line suitable for climbers with previous mountaineering & rock climbing experience.
The Grand Traverse of Single and Double Cone is one of the most classic single day alpine routes in New Zealand climbing. The steep, exposed and sustained ridge line provides excellent rock climbing on with incredible views 2000m down the west face of the Remarkables to Lake Wakatipu and Queenstown. The eastern side of the ridge line is almost as spectacular as you climb high above Lake Alta.
The Grand Traverse requires an early and start takes 8-10 hours to complete the traverse. This is a must do if you are visiting Queenstown for climbing.

"If mountaineering or rock climbing is your passion/hobby, Mike Madden and his staff can fulfil your ambition to summit some some of most technical and beautiful mountains that New Zealand has to offer. I've had two expeditions with Mike through QMG, to the single cone summit on the Remarkables and the North West Ridge of Mt. Aspiring. I cannot recommend this organisation enough due to their training, the time they take to train their clients if necessary, the food and equipment provided, as well as the guiding experience needed for a safe and successful expedition. Take a camera, though photos can be taken by the guides. The best organisation in New Zealand that I've climbed with." Will, Australia
