A 3 day trip from Mt Robert carpark along Robert Ridge to Angelus Hut (1 serviced hut ticket). Day two: climb up to Sunset Saddle and bag Angelus Peak on the way then descend Hopeless Creek to Hopeless Hut (1 serviced hut ticket). The fit and adventurous might like to do a quick climb to the summit of Mt Hopeless (takes about 3 hours return). Day three: out via Travers Valley back to cars. Each day is strenous and around 6-7 hours (plus 3 if climbing Hopeless). Snow is melting fast in the hills, but ice axe and crampons should be carried. There is some significant exposure enroute, so if walkers are not comfortable with heights this may not be the trip for them,.
Due to injury there is the possibility that this ride will be moved back to 20th November . . . stay tuned!
A slightly different variation on tramping. However, there is some walking unless you are crazy fit enough to bike all the way up to Beebys. Plan will be to park at Red Hills car park and bike/push up road to start of track then follow Maitland Ridge thru to Red Hills hut and back out to the cars. 4-5 hours ride time over about 25kms with a couple of great downhills.

From Robert Ridge carpark, zig-zag up the aptly named Pinchgut Track to the ridgeline for great 360 degree views. Will probably tramp further up the ridge to above the old skifield before returning via Bushline Hut and Paddy's Track to the cars.
