Boundary Peak Hut (Brunner Range)

From Mt Curtis and along the ridge to Boundary Peak is all easy quick travel and the 2km bush section is relatively open and easy. Midway along this section Simon Lewis and Mauricio Lloreda happened upon a single orange plastic marker (not a DOC triangle)

The small 2 bunk hut northeast of Boundary Peak at the bush edge was a bit of a disappointment. The two door bolts were rusted closed and the door was hard to get open. The hut was damp and very mouldy inside. There are a couple of mattresses and pillows, There is a water tank but it was either empty or the tap was blocked as it didn't yield anything. We both agreed that we would rather bivvy out in dry conditions or prefer a tent.

Notes from Simon Lewis's post on Permolat: From Inangahua to Mt Curtis Hut took about 5 hours although access up Dee Ck would have saved 30 mins or so. Curtis Hut to Boundary Hut was about 3-4 hours and it took around 4 hours to descend to the Buller Road although we would have been quicker if we hadn't gone looking for markers. The bush is mostly reasonable going, no monkey scrub, just a few dense bits and a moderate amount of windfall
