1  South Island / Roys Peak / Hiking to Roys Peak Date: January 08, 2020, 12:09:49 PM
Having never been to Queenstown before we booked a family trip there and took some friends too.  On my bucket list was to climb Roys Peak which I did with my buddy Chris.  I was just starting out with my outdoorsman dave YouTube channel in those days but please see the recording @ https://youtu.be/1xBka5mA10Q
2  South Island / Ben Lomond / Hiking to Ben Lomond summit Date: January 08, 2020, 11:54:15 AM
Having just come off the Routeburn the day before and looking for some more hiking local to Queenstown, my buddy Chris and I bagged Ben Lomond on a very clagged low visibility day.  A great little hike all the same which was recorded and posted to my YouTube channel @ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epKpe1qOx04
3  South Island / Key Summit / Hiking to Key summit with Outdoorsman Dave Date: January 08, 2020, 11:50:01 AM
Having spent the night prior @ McKellar Hut I met up with my friends at Howden Hut for the start of our Routeburn adventure together the following day.  To explore a bit more we hiked back 15minutes to the Key Summit intersection for a look at what views there were on Key Summit.   Not many good views sadly but a nice afternoon walk with friends.

Sadly clagged visibility on this day but a most enjoyable 5.5 hour return trip from the bottom of mountain and back.
5  South Island / Robert, Mt / Mt Robert Date: February 28, 2018, 07:05:26 AM
This might be the start of bagging South Island peaks now that all North Island ones are completed.  Along with two mates we took 8 days to tramp the Travers - Sabine circuit.  Today was a big day from Sabine Hut up Mt Cedric, past Mt Angelus (unwise to attempt with a huge blister) along Roberts Ridge to Paddy's track, side trip to bag Mt Robert then double back to stay the night at Bushline Hut.
6  North Island Trip Reports and Comments / Hirakimata / Mt Hirakimata - Mt Hobson Date: February 28, 2018, 06:59:49 AM
Took three mates on the ferry to tramp the Aotea circuit.  Mt Hobson is the last of the North Island peaks, the Island access being the reason this and Kapiti Island were my two last peaks to complete.  Had a wonderful time, climbing Mt Heale and staying at this amazing hut.  Should money, time and fitness allow I guess its onto the South Island next.
7  South Island / Robert, Mt / Mt Robert Date: February 28, 2018, 06:19:58 AM
A big day today walking from Sabine Hut up Mt Cedric, sadly past Mt Anglus (not wise due to a huge painful blister) then along Roberts Ridge to Paddys track intersection with a quick side trip to Mt Robert then doubled back to stay the night at Bushline Hut.
8  North Island Trip Reports and Comments / Urchin / Urchin Date: April 08, 2017, 03:13:28 PM
Trip report update bagged 24th July 2011 as part of the circuit with its neighbor.  I have done it once again getting to the hut.
9  North Island Trip Reports and Comments / Tuteremoana (Kapiti Is.) / Tuteremoana on Kapiti Island Date: April 08, 2017, 03:10:05 PM
Trip report update bagged 26th April 2016 with Graham.  There were only two peaks to be bagged when I finished up in 2013 and that was Tuteremoana on Kapiti Island which took me three years to get to leaving Mt Hobson on Great Barrier Island which I complete last week 1st April 2017.  Completed North Island but a pity that the Peak Bagging site is screwed up as it is only counted trip reports written and not once only a peaked bagged.
