Hike and climb a summit among one of the most picturesque landscapes in the Southern Alps.

Begin your adventure by hiking up the Temple Basin Ski Field access trail. Continue beyond the Ski huts to the upper basin below Mt Temple and B'Limit. Continue hiking under the rope tows to the saddle where the views will surly take your breath away.

Once at the saddle mount the ridge-top to climbers right and ascend the crest on ledges and choss. Climbing is  class 3-4 and exposed in places. The ridge-top will eventually level out and you can see the summit of Mt B'Limit far in the distance. Walk / scramble to the summit and pat yourself on the back for a job well done.

You can either descend the way you came, or if you have the time and necessary information you can continue traversing to Mt Cassidy and descend to Cons Track back to Arthur's Pass. 

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.
