Marchant Ridge

Jessie, Paul, and I planned a weekend walk up Marchant Ridge and down to Eastern Hutt Hut. Failed. The depth of snow slowed us down along with Paul's legs cramping and turning to jelly. We had an aim to get to Marchant (1038m) by 1500 hours as we wanted a two hours of light to find our way down a ridge into the Eastern Hutt river. At 1530, half a kilometer from Marchant we decided to head out and return home.
