Getting there
Getting there
Most people fly in. A few hardy souls come over the Sherwood Range or the Two Thumb Range via Stoneleigh Saddle. We went in via Stoneleigh Farm track and up the S. Opuha. We elected to sidle on the true left as the river was up a bit. One other party has come via the river in the last 4 years, according to the hut book.
