North Ruth Flat Rock Bivvy

Good rock bivvy formed by an overhanging rock cliff located north of Ruth Flat in the East Matukituki. On topo map BZ11 look for the stream draining Peak 1828 and the southeastern flank of Aspinall Peak. The south facing bivvy is located about 50m from the true left side of the East Matukituki about 5m above the stream at BZ11 709823. Some light scrub gives it a little protection from the south.

Sleeps about 4, and has an open fireplace. Water is from a stream 5m away.
