The tops surrounding Ben More (1655m) in the Torlesse-Korowai Tussocklands Park offer grand panoramic views for those who can brave the steep and unrelenting 800m approach.

Although the area is covered in snow throughout a good part of the winter, the almost flat sections of ridgeline will be of benefit to those wishing to practice their ski touring or winter tramping skills.
