McKerrow - Matthews circuit
« on: February 08, 2009, 05:38:12 AM »
Lance and I climbed McKerrow and Matthews in a day in early 2008 as part of our Trailwalker training.  We used the obvious clockwise circuit, starting and finishing at the Catchpool carpark.  A seriously long day (10 hours of fast walking); need to start early to avoid having the car locked in at Catchpool.  The track up Matthews itself is pretty steep.

The first two photos below are of Mt Matthews; the third is the view from the top out towards the Wairarapa.
