17 February
Lake Rotoiti Circuit Easy  $20

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

Phone: 539 1340

Summertime and the swimming is easy!   Easy walking on a very good track and mostly flat, although quite long. Many potential places to swim. Plan to go around the lakeside track anticlockwise with the possibility of a car shuttle to the track start off the Mt Robert Road. There is pretty beech forest to Coldwater Hut. Then wade the Travers and on to Lakehead Hut. Back to Kerr Bay through the more sparse forest on the Eastern side.

 

24 February
Kayaking Pepin Island Grade TBD  $5

Phone: 539 3758 (w)

One for the arms!! We can have a short stroll on Maori Pa Spit though. High tide early afternoon, so plan on going clockwise, around 4 hours depending on stops/ swims etc.  Should be able to access the caves on the western side en route. Source your own gear if you can, otherwise come talk with me. The tides are slightly better for Saturday, so keep this option open, will go on the best of the two days with low winds ect.

2 March
Starlight Cave/Harwoods Grade TBD  $17

Harwoods Lookout and Starlight Cave

For those that havent been, here is a link to some pics

Starlight is the exit cave from the Harwoods Hole entrance, deep down in Gorge Creek. It's a beautiful cavern. Bring torches, polypro/wetsuit and wet footwear to use if you want to amble around in the cavern. A helmet is also advisable. It's a steep drop into the basin and climb out, so must be ok and not freaked by loose rock (and not mind a grunty workout). All in the name of fun. A solid day's walk.

Because of the steep loose descent, numbers will be limited

Ahuriri Valley Fit  $NR

Kate Krawczyk Email: NTC.President@yahoo.com

Phone: 5476463

Easter week

A ten day window for some extended adventuring in the hills provides us with a fantastic opportunity to go farther afield. 

This trip can accommodate many grades and difficulties of trips but I will be leading a fit trip. Please contact me if you are interested in discussing Medium options in this area and leading a group. The Ahuriri is full of huts and side valleys that are well worth exploring and easily accessible. 

Fit trip will require good fitness and balance as we will be crossing high passes. We may need to carry ice axe and crampons. The plan so far is as follows:

Day 1: Follow Watson Stream from the Ahuriri to Watson headwaters to camp

Day 2 and/or 3: Over into the Temple headwaters, if day goes well, continue to tarns below Mt.Huxley and camp, if a more leisurely day is in order, stay at South Temple Hut or camp in the Temple and then carry onto the tarns the next day.

Day 3/4: Loop back into the Ahuriri to the stay at Top Hut

Day 4/5: Back to the start.

Day 5/6/7 etc.: Explore Little Canyon and Big Canyon Creeks with hut and camping options in the area.
