The walk takes 5-7 hours, is unguided and suitable for moderately fit people. The cost is $35-return for the transport, which is refunded if the weather deteriorates and the Crossing is cancelled [see WEATHER CANCELLATION POLICY]


Due to the safety and equipment requirements of being in an alpine environment the cost is $135 and includes transport to and from accommodation, ice axe and crampons, walking poles if required and well-earned refreshment at the end.
