A fantastic day trip either as a there-and-back trip from Little Mt Peel or as a round-trip from Mt Peel Station.
Follow Long Spur to the top of the ridge then into the obvious saddle before starting the 600m ascent to Mt Peel. The last 250m is scrambling up through a rocky ridge. The summit is a great place to spot Mt Cook and other peaks, as well as the Rangitata River winding it's way to the sea.
Travel from here along the ridge to Little Mt Peel is easy. The steep descent off Middle Mt Peel is marked by a couple of cairns and poles otherwise you could find yourself descending the wrong ridge.
From Little Mt Peel pick up the well-marked Deer Spur track to drop down to Blandswood (about 2 hrs).
