Just passing - the outside water/sink made for easy gear cleanup while waiting for transport. Lots of sandflies.

Windy as hell at the saddle below Gibbs but almost calm at the summit.
Chaffey Hut

Chaffey Hut
Slept in this hut (wanted a dry tent for the trip home) and found it to be cosy and comfortable. Note that the 3rd bed is in the ante-room. Plenty of tent sites close by.
Cobb Hutt

Cobb Hutt
Just passing on a loop around Xenicus, Gibbs etc. 4 or 5 good tent sites but the hut has seen better days. Not sure if it would be vermin-proof.
Fenella Hut

Fenella Hut
Lovely hut but very limited camping - a couple of spots in front of the woodshed. A cleared area nearby is a bog in dry weather and has sharps that would make a nail bed seem soft. Better camping at Cobb Hut.
Lonely Lake Hut

Lonely Lake Hut
Some camping close to the hut but many more options just on the TR of the outlet. We had 2 nights here (and a bit of wind) with a day trip to Anatoki Peak.
Lonely Lake - Fenella Hut

Lonely Lake - Fenella Hut
Walked out and back as part of a 7-day tramp along the Lockett & Douglas Ranges. Well worth summitting Kakapo if time permits, in good weather.

A serviced hut but does not have a stove (ie no gas) - it has a heater.

1 only tent site at the hut but plenty of distributed camping above the outlet (TL). We had 2 nights here and another at tarns below Yuletide Peak - great spots

The Kaweka Main Range - a NS traverse
We found the section up the Otorehaiti stream much tougher than madpom - maybe it's easier in the stream but here's what we did (not recommended :) After crossing the Oamaru river, we climbed above Otore stream (on the TL) and stayed around 750m contour before dropping back to the stream at 730m. Travel i/beside the stream was very slow so we pulled out onto a spur at the 770m level and climbed S the SW to 950m and tried to contour around - bad idea. Lots of guts cutting down to the Otore stream made progress even slower. We looked for a campsite (not much flat ground!) and settled beside the stream at 1040m contour. Next morning, from there to the saddle was steep but comparatively easy.

Although there is no track leading upstream from the hut (contrary to that shown on older maps), there is now 1.4km of newly cut (and marked) track which starts approx. 1km above the hut.

2nd time to Blue Lake, this time tramping from St Arnaud to Lewis Pass (via Waiau, Thompson, D'Urville, 3 Tarns Passes). Blue Lake even bluer this time; a bright summer's day - and the greens are iridescent.

Day 2 and a long stop here as one of us had a fall descending Cedric Tk and broke her wrist - no answer on the radio so two fisherman took her to Nelson (thanks guys!). We continued to Lewis Pass.

Pleasant enough after it's been cleared, the lower third or this track can be painful (literally) if overgrown.
