Nelson NZAC club trip organised by Ben Winnubst with Roger, Pat, Norman Carrington and I to climb Mt Humbolt in the Spenser Mountains.
We headed off early Saturday morning and drove to Springs Junction where we stopped for coffee and then carried onto Hanmer for another brief stop. Drove over Jollies pass to Lake Tennyson where we parked the cars. Headed off over Maling Pass and then up the Waiau River heading for Caroline Creek.
We left our bivvy site at quarter past five and headed up into the snow, quite cold with cloud around the tops so not such great views. A great fun time was had by all.
Walked back out to Lake Tennyson and drove home to Nelson.
