Default Any scrambling from Abbott Pass Hut?

I'm going to be going to Ohara with my family this summer for 3 days, I was wondering, if you head up to the hut, I know the views aren't great, just looking down the gully on one side and the death trap on the other.. but is there anywhere to scramble up (class 2/3) where you could get some views without full on climbing with gear to victoria, huber or lefroy?

You can get a fair ways up Victoria without serious climbing, depending on where you draw the line between climbing and scrambling. I don’t know if the views get any better as I was up there in the dark.

The greatest signature ever, tribute.

"depending on where you draw the line between climbing and scrambling". Exactly.


PLS don't be going anywhere beyond the hut without a partner, climbing gear and the knowledge to use it. You don't have to go very far up before you're into some serious terrain. People have died there.

i draw the line between scrambling at any sustained sections above class 4, i'm definitely more risk averse than your typical scrambler
