The Pylon, Cascade Saddle, New Zealand
New Zealand

This is the Pylon area on the Cascade Saddle Route that connects Aspiring Hut in the Matukituki Valley with Dart Hut on the Rees-Dart Track in the Dart Valley. The ascent from the Matukituki Valley is steep but the challenge really lies later near the top when there are some rocky outcrops and ledges to negotiate. The Pylon is so named as there is a small steel tower at the top that marks the end of the ascent. The Dart Glacier, here to the left could be observed here without venturing down 300m or so to the Cascade Saddle. Mt. Aspiring is in the centre and the valley below where the Matukituki river runs easternly is unsurprisingly called the West Matukituki Valley. At the extreme end, hidden here is the Raspberry Creek where there is a car park to leave one's vehicle behind. The Shark's Tooth peak is that rather distinct peak with a sharp edge on the right.
