Thanks to Stuart Orange for adding this peak.

Tiana is a beautiful, though not technically demanding mountain that is a fantastic experience for those who are not brilliant on ice, or do not have a vast amount of experience. In March the ice is still solid and risks are fairly minimal. If fairly inexperienced it is advisable to take a guide or someone who is experienced. Only difficulty really is finding the mountain. From Mindu there are six tracks. One heads directly north east and this is the one to follow. After about 26km there is a wooden bridge across a small, but deep, gulley which can only be crossed on foot or by mule. No vehicles. Follow the shepherd trail for 6km to a lake and to the south west down a small valley is Tiana. We last climbed here in 1989 so it would be advisable to check this out before attempting it. Any questions I will try to reply to.
