Participant Information

Apologies for the last minute posting. This will be a Friday drive up (2wd). For details, see Matt Gunn's description  on pages 186-189

This will be a reasonably well-paced trip. If your Grind time or 10 km run times are typically under an hour, you'll be in good company.

99% will be hiking, with a short few steps on the 2nd peak that have moderate exposure. We were looking at this area last week from Birkenhead Peak, and it's very inviting, with lots of attractive ridges and plenty of alpine lakes. Have a look at the links below
