Rock of Ages Bivouac

Mount Aspiring National Park

An overhang above the Kitchener River and Aspiring Flats, near the Matukituki East Branch. Room to sleep 10, although exposed to weather, with dry space for 2 to 4. Another rock just below has space for 3 to 4. The biv features a dry stone fireplace.

This rock overhang was discovered in 1958 by a group attempting Mount Avalanche.
