South Ohau Longer Way

Planned on a Friday night journey up the Ohau to South Ohau hut, however the rain of Friday put me off that. So I left late Saturday morning thinking the river would have gone down.

I left late in the afternoon expecting the water level to be down. I carried on up to the fly camp and found the water swift and deep. Decided that it was not a good idea to continue, so I headed back and then walked up Gables.

The walk down the river was slow as it was still quite deep and raining.
