Aorere Peak Fit  $26

Phone: 539 1340

Excellent trip to the beautiful tops in the Cobb Valley area of Kahurangi National Park. Although fitness is required, it will be 'steady as she goes' and non-techncial. NOTE: there are some changes in route/camp site.

Day 1: Drive to road end at Trilobite Hut. Tramp up valley to Cobb Hut. Turn E and carry on along the track to Lake Cobb and then to Round Lake (1300m). Camp by lake.

Day 2. With day packs, head NE up onto ridge leading to Mt Gibbs (1645m) and continue ca 2.5 km N along ridge for the final scramble to Aorere Peak (1730m). Return to Round Lake, possibly via Xenicus Peak.

Day 3. De-camp and return back down valley to vehicles. Aim to be back in Nelson in time for NTC Club Night (Show & Tell).

Variations are possible depending on the weather.

17 - 18 March
John Reid Hut, Wangapeka Medium 

Patrick Holland Email: p.t.holland@xtra.co.nz

Phone: 539 1340

A final working-bee for our Outdoor Recreation Consortium project to renovate this classic FS 6-bunk hut. Five very keen workers required to fly in / walk out. The main job is painting the interior and exterior of the hut. Potentially this could extend to 2 nights as there is a heap of work to be completed and weather is a factor for the exterior painting and for crossing the W. river on the way out.

This is a follow-up to the very successful w/b in February led by Ian and Silvano that did extensive building work: some repiling, lined the ceiling, removed the old open fireplace & chimney and installed a wood burning stove plus flue and a new bench-top.

17 March

Goldie oldie again. Up via the usual route and back via northern spur, hole in the rock, and Horseshoe Basin. May switch to Sunday depending on weather.

24 - 25 March
Mt Fell Hut Fit 

Bob Janssen Email: rrcjanssen@outlook.co.nz

Phone: 548 8257

This will be a small working party for the assembly and installation of a wood shed. Bob has made a kitset for the shed which has been choppered up there. It will probably be walk in/walk out from Timms Creek track-head, E. Bank, Wairau. Could extend to 2 nights depending on how the work goes and the weather. This will the finale for all NTC's work on this hut. A hugely successful ORC-funded project but the money is all gone for more choppering!
