Mount Weart Wedgemount Lake Unmarked Routes
Mount Weart is probably the most popular of the branching hikes from Wedgemount Lake. This is because of its extraordinarily beautiful views from its summit. It is quite difficult and some tricky route finding is involved as you leave Wedgemount Glacier for the Weart ascent. But you will have trouble finding more beautiful views from another peak in the area. It is a difficult and long scramble from the Wedgemount Lake Hut and a considerable elevation gain of 780 metres from the Hut. Give yourself at least four hours roundtrip, hut to hut.
From the Wedge hut head down the scree valley trail to the left side of Wedgemount Lake. Continue up the Wedgemount Glacier staying to the left edge of the glacier on the talus and scree as comfortably possible until you see the creek that flows from Mount Weart. Continue up the left side of this creek, this is where the scrambling becomes difficult, but only for a short while. The difficult section leads to a basin with a glacier to your right. Stay to the left edge of this glacier and make your way somewhat directly up the scree slopes until you reach the ridge leading to Weart. You will take this ridge to your left until you reach the summit.
