This is a classic through walk traversing mountainous terrain between Teviot Gap and Spicers Gap. Like all Main Range walks, this features impressive views, lots of up and down and a variety of terrain from rainforest to open forest with grass trees. The walk is suitable for fit and experienced throughwalkers. Each of the three days involves walking along the Main Range escarpment, offering spectacular views, and occasional cliff breaks which require confidence in scrambling. It is a variation on the usual route to Mt Roberts, crossing Teviot Falls and climbing over Mt Bell on the way to Mt Roberts. Lunch experiences spectacular views at Lizard Point, and then head to our campsite at Mt Steamer saddle. Then a climb Panorama Point, Mt Asplenium and Mt Huntley and then a camp at Huntley saddle. Day 3 climbs to Mt Doubletop and Spicer's Peak before a steep descent to Spicer's Gap.
