Found at the North End of Ruth Flat this bivy provides easy accomodation for those not wanting to carry on down to the main Ruth Flats a further hours walk away, although it is rather open to the South. Located at BZ11 709823 its about 50m from the East Matukituki.



  • Yarmoss Yarmoss Hey, to be honest I pulled those coordinates off the DoC website article for the Rabbit Pass crossing.
