Routeburn - Pass Creek

This thread branched from "Kaima Range - Kauritatahi Hut --> Puketutu Hut " on . Explore the branch.

DOC have informed us that there is a slip between Howden Hut and Key Summit and they suggest Pass Creek as an alternate. We will be starting the Routeburn track from the west. Has anyone recently been up Pass Creek? I'd love an idea of what it is like and how long it took.
I've been and done it. Due to 200mls of rain two days before it was very muddy in parts, and the sphagnum moss bogs were hazards to avoid. Elevation went from 310 to 700, and took 1.5-2 hrs. Ultimate hikes took all their clients this way, so it's well used.
