Hello Lovely Trampers

 lets get up into an area we dont often go as a club. Many have told me thay havent been to the fabulous Monkey Biv area.

With some flexibility from after work 29th Jan to 8th Feb depending on weather.

Drive to Marble Hill campsite Sunday 31st

Monday 1st

Climb Mt Haast or option to do two day around Klondyke tarns, up via Spur Track, camp at tarns and back via Valley track.

Return to Maarble point campsite

Tuesday 2nd/ Wednesday 3rd

Obtain Monkey Biv via classic route 5-7 hours all lovely tops travel.  Tents required, beautiful tarn and two Biv hut.

Wednesday 3rd

Exit via Rough Creek track back to State Highway.

Open to suggestions for this week.  My rough plan is to be Kayaking the 30th/31st in Murchison and option to bike to Ghost lake, sometime this week  spend night and back down . Head to Hurunui kayaking 6th/7th/8th.

So anyone open to join for biking  or in heading down to Lake Taylor (Actually I know of a better campsite, with permission). There are walking/ biking options in that area. Bike from Lake Taylor to Lake Sumner, easy biking, lovely hills. Dont need full suspension MTB! Numerous walks day/overnight to huts ect. Jolly Brook area. We might even be able to work shuttle for you and pick you up back in the Lewis pass.

Hit me up with  your thoughts

and we will  see what will work best with the weather.  Ideally you have the week off work. Monday is Nelson Anaeversary day and Waitangi weekend.  Join for all or part or fit your own adventures in.

For now just flick me your interest and thoughts and keep otpions open.
