Kaima Range - Kauritatahi Hut --> Puketutu Hut

Has anyone walked this recently, it's the 'Old North South Track' along the top of the Kaimai Range, Te Henga Ridge, that connects Kauritatahi & Puketutu Huts. The 'New North South Track' drops down off the Range into Aongatete and so travels this section to the East... Kauritatahi & Puketutu Huts are no longer on the 'North South Track'. Anyone done this recently, who can maybe offer some track beta, how well marked it is, how easy it was to find/follow the track/route, maybe some track times etc between the 2 huts? Even better a GPS track of the route !! Thanks in advance.

Yes the puketutu hit is south of the tunnel line. And there is still an old marked track from the top of the falls along what was the old N/S track. Friends did it 6 weeks ago.
Probably not helpful, maybe 15years I was doing a recce for a club on the new NS track. I stopped for lunch and the earth started shaking, initially thought earthquake, but came to my senses. At that time the track to the Eastern survey peg was still marked.
