Labour Weekend Tramp
« on: October 30, 2013, 10:44:59 AM »
Out on a Labour Weekend Tramp with my fiance.

We did the double with Papatahi at 0930, followed by Mt Matthews at 1600
We camped under tarp at the trail heads in both cases on terraces next to either Boulder Creek or Orongorongo rivers.

Weather was gale force about the tops so we didnt linger. Although managed to see some amazing views at both the view point just above South Saddle Junction, and at the summit.

The climbs up were steep and the climbs down were brutal on the knees and very hard work with fatigued legs. All up about 1500 of ascent.
