Mt Fell and Mt Richmond Fit

Day 1: From Te Rou Road (Northbank Wairau) follow the track along Timms Creek then steeply up to the site of the Mt Fell hut at 1300m. This is the club's latest project so this is an opportunity to see how it is progressing. Standard hut ticket.

Day 2: Short walk over Mt Richmond to Richmond Saddle Hut with time to explore the surrounding area. Standard hut ticket.
