South Ohau Escape Route

On an earlier trip with Carl we saw in the hut book that a party was cutting and marking the escape route up from South Ohau hut to bump 930 on the Gable End Ridge Track.
So this weekend checked it out and it is well marked and an easy uphill way out when the river is in flood. The track is good for fun for variety if you are coming from Te Matawai as you get an uphill after the downhill so more exercise, than if straight out down South Ohau.
