Queens Drive Route176 viewsStarting from Remarkables carpark, head up Shadow Basin. From the top , head up the track that goes up to the lookout point, and take the left branch This takes you up and over onto the western face of the Remarkables.
From here, there is a goat track that mostly hugs the cliffs until it opens out on a large open rockfall under Single Cone. From here, there is a worthwhile side trip up to a small peak with a large rectangular tor. Then loop back via Wye tarns and over Wye Saddle and back to the carpark.
