Mount Sabre (2.162 m/7093 ft high) is part of the spectacular Darren Mountains, situated in the northern part of Fiordland.

It is the perfect destination for rock climbing lovers, offering a total number of 37 routes. The rock is granite with many natural lines, climbs and technical difficulties.

There is also the possibility of abseiling down the East Ridge. When you get to the top, the magnificent panoramic view of the surrounding mountains and valleys will definitely reward you! Experience the ultimate adventure and feel the thrill of climbing using metal rungs, learn how to handle the ropes and dedicate your mind and body 100%. Grades: 16-18.
