Tariga and I decided that we would do a bit of a blast into Nelson Lakes for a few days. Somehow it got truncated to an over nigh trip. At least we threw in a random ridge on the way out. Thought it would be a bush bash but turned out to have a well trodden path on it.
Drove away from Nelson on a sunny Thursday morning and got to St Arnaud and had lunch at the Lodge. Good food and coffee. A prep for the walk into Speargrass. Drove up to the Robert Ridge car park and after being stuck behind a shalom mobile at 5km an hour I finally managed to fish tail past them at high speed hopefully scaring the shit out of them. Ready to go.
After a night of bad sleeping in a hot stuffy hut we decided that we would head out, so a ridge we had never walked become our objective. The one in the foreground.
And this trip had no whisky as a new year resolution is to deny oneself for a while...
