Stories, information and comments from Crown Range climbers
Story by Johan Jambroes from Alkmaar, The Netherlands, submitted on 09/04/2015
Leaving the pittoresque village of Arrowtown, the first part of the climb goes straight into the hill, with a lot of bends. Reaching the height of about 600 metres, the climb flattens. The last 3 km are hard with a gradient over 10%. No bends anymore. Once reached the top, you will be "pleased" by an descent, trouble by the wind in your face. Take a resthalfway down at Hotel Cardrona. Beautiful front!!
