Hobbs Bivvy, Route Burn North Branch

Mount Aspiring National Park, Te Wāhipounamu - South West New Zealand World Heritage Area

A dry and sheltered bivvy underneath a giant boulder in the North Branch of the Route Burn. Sleeps 4 or 5 but with only about half a metre of clearance underneath it's crawling room only.

There's a stream bed right beside the biv but that was quite dry in early February. Possibly holds water at other times in the year but otherwise the nearest water is from the river a couple of hundred metres away.
