Head up this marked DOC track from the road for awesome 360deg views of the Molesworth station. It's big country with expansive views up the Awatere valley and down the Acheron. Spot Tapuae-o-uenuku to the North East and enjoy the whole Inland Kaikoura Range. The initial 4wd track leads to a saddle, from there followed the poled route up to the left and traverse the ridge until reaching the broad summit of Mt Chisholm - it's further than you think. The summit is marked by a small DOC sign.
On the way down take in Pt1279 to bag a second peak for the day.
