Description: 

Climb up onto the St Arnaud range ridgeline via the Parachute Rock track and head north-east over a highpoint at 1683m. It's an easy open ridge for a few kms before entering stunted beech to find the descent route back down through to Alpine Meadows estate. Excellent views of the Nelson Lakes area. Some car shuffling required.
