Map of Toaroha Valley to Pinnacle Biv via Adventure Ridge routes
This map is to illustrate the route info provided under the Comments section of the Pinnacle biv hut page.
The options of both traverses and sidles for Mts Reeves & Genoa Peak are shown. One note of caution; if descending Mt Reeves by the "sidle" route. Make sure you are on the correct rib before committing to the second half of the descent below the lower lip of the bottom bench. There is quite a bit of leeway on the upper bit but not where you get off the bench. You can see on my descent track where I have done a dog leg at around the 1460m mark to put me on the correct rib for the rest of the descent. (When you are on the face under Mt Reeves you can't actually see the correct place to descend below the 1460m mark until you are right on it or immediately adjacent it.)
I suppose it's superfluous to say these routes are best done when visibility is good!
