The Darran Mountains are remotely located in Fiordland National Park and are one of the great wilderness areas of the Southern Hemisphere. It is an area where snow-capped mountains, rivers of ice, deep lakes, unbroken forests and tussock grasslands produce a landscape of exceptional beauty including the internationally renowned Milford Sound.
Based at the historic NZAC Homer Hut, this location offers an amazing array of alpine rock climbing objectives for a range of abilities on immaculate rock. Even the approaches to these climbs are well rewarded by amazing views of the Darrans Range and beautiful steep vistas of the fiords out to the Tasman Sea. Here are just a selection of the routes available...
- Moir's Mate
- Mt Sabre (2162m)
