Karst Spring flows from beneath Mount Shark to emerge on the northeast slopes of the mountain.
Scrambling Routes
Moderate scramble via the north ridge; brief exposure. In spite of its lower elevation, Mount Shark is an excellent vantage point and a pretty decent scramble. Technical difficulties are few, but lack of a recognizable path beyond Karst Spring probably dissuades the curious wanderers from exploring much farther. Try from July on.
