Charlotte's Pass to Twynam Access Map

Description

Accessible from anywhere along the top ridge of Charlotte's Pass, but most likely from the top of the Kosciuszko Triple Chair or Guthries, drop in down to the Snowy river to the north-west. Get to the point where you are just below the point at which the commonly unfrozen tributary which leads from the Blue Lake direction joins the Snowy, this is the best point to cross. From there, simply head up and out along the spur leading all the way up to Twynam. This ridge line is completely visible and is easy to negotiate all the way to the summit. This tour will most likely take about 3 - 4 hours depending on conditions and fitness.

Difficulty
