Mt Humbolt

Nelson NZAC club trip organised by Ben Winnubst with Roger, Pat, Norman Carrington and I to climb Mt Humbolt in the Spenser Mountains.

Saturday 25/10/2003
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.
Went past Caroline Biv just after five in the evening. Walked up Caroline Creek for about another hour to a nice bivvy site where we set up camp. In bed by eight and it was sleeting.

Sunday 26/10/2003
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.
Once back at the biv site we packed up and headed back down to Caroline Biv for the night.
