I have been thinking of going up Mt. Weart for a while. It is a 3 star rated scramble by Matt Gunn.
Mt. Weart is a fantastic scramble offering great views of Wedge mountain, Wedgemount glacier, the much larger Weart glacier and some of the remote peaks of Garibladi Park. It is possbile to ascend Weart from Wedgemount lake and hike out to the car in the same day, making it a good weekend objective. It can be done as a very long day trip from the car for fast, fit parties. We want to be that fast, fit party. The ridge scramble to the summit is very pleasant without much exposure.
Unfortunately, this trip will not be beginner friendly. It requires +2,000 m elevation gain, early start, late finish, and crossing snow patches. Ice axe and self-arrest knowledge is required. If you have any questions, please let me know.
