Arthur's Pass National Park

Getting there
Getting there
Up Bull Creek from Bull Creek Hut. In high water climb the face directly opposite Bull Creek hut and sidle above the gorge until the tracks lead you down to Bull Creek where the gorge opens again. The second gorge must be skirted in high water also but return to the creek bed after and only leave it when you have the biv in sight on the true right.
