It is split into upper and lower glaciers which are connected by an icefall. The Upper Volta Glacier is between 1,600–2,000 m (5,200–6,600 ft) in altitude and is surrounded by the 3 peaks of Glacier Dome, Pickelhaube and Fastness Peak, while the Lower Volta Glacier sits directly under the North side of Mount Aspiring / Tititea and lies between 1,000–1,400 m (3,300–4,600 ft). The Glacier feeds the Pearson River, a tributary of the Waiatoto River which eventually runs out to the West Coast.
