There was a Covid exposure event at the Green Lake Hut in Fiordland Saturday night, this does bring the risk home: https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/health/coronavirus/300471921/covid19-locations-of-interest-in-delta-outbreak--december-7 I'm ...

Another one for you - colleague just back from an ascent of Mt Adams. 2140m vertical height difference, most of it in 5km! Ice axe and crampons - but he describes it as a scramble ...

interesting
I haven't been up there, I'm just reading Moirs Guidebook (North) and looking at the topomap. The topomap shows a track up the valley through the bush sections and two huts in the valley. https://www.topomap.co.nz/NZTopoMap?v=2&ll=-43.97614...
I'd suggest looking at a topomap when planning a trip (and obviously taking one with you when you go). They give clear indications of distance. Online topomaps are available from several sites, including: http://www.topomap.co.nz/ Most tr...
At the bridge over the Ashley just north of the road the whole place looked like a war zone. Obviously the approaches to the bridge had been rebuilt but the piles of gravel suggest water ...
Not bad 😀
Thanks, a few people have done the full Solution Range from above Marks Flat all the way along to Clarke Mound and down to near the Landsborough Clarke confluence (or vice versa). The bush/scrub over ...
You could also drop to the east from the track that leads to Urchin from between Sharp Cone and Umakarikari. There was running water there and what looked like decent campsites when I was past ...
Wightman has sold up now. No doubt the land will be used for private hunting trips. Cookies is still accessible after the flooding of June 2021. Tribulation Hut has lost its toilet - lying 50m downstream ...
From studying GPS tracked times, it has been possible for us to do it in 3 hours but it depends on the condition of the track at the time. It would usually take us an ...
I went over the saddle in the summer of 2014 in good weather. The route was in good order and easy to follow at the time. Nothing too technically challenging, just steep. The basin at ...
It was marked by pink plastic stripes. I'm hoping to get there this winter so I'll let you know what was it about
Useful input, thank you. Waynowski, in answer to your question I just thought I could stick to the high route if conditions permitted and then drop down to the lower route if required to play ...
Thanks again!

I wouldn’t be too worried. Obviously the farther from a road end the safer.
Did Heaphy both ways back in September, and saw almost as many mountain bikers as walkers, and certainly no bad experiences.
It’s doable. I was on the bus to Routeburn Shelter that arrived there about 0940. Got to the original Hollyford road end at about 1930 I think. Be aware there’s nowhere decent to camp when ...

An MP presented my mapping petition to Parliament yesterday. https://www.parliament.nz/en/pb/hansard-debates/rhr/combined/HansDeb_20210505_20210505_12 The timing looks likely to coincide conveniently with the imminent formal policy process ann...

Awesome. Glad it went well for you and your daughter.
Thanks @izogi, that’s very helpful. The North Egmont to Mangorei option looks interesting and thanks for the shuttle link. I think I’ll need to have a bad weather back up option as well!

We need 10 degree frosts not snow. Even better 4 inches of rain in 30 minutes followed by 10 degree frosts. Not good for the roads or farms I know but that should turn wasp ...
