Traverse Loop - Peel & Locket Ranges (Ladies Trip)
Two ladies trips in one weekend - hell yeah!
This one is led by Dulkara Martig and is a longer (3 day) weekend adventure with a different route plan. We had originally planned to have one ladies trip this weekend but after some discussion decided it would be cool to have two different route options, with all of us meeting at Fenella Hut on Saturday evening for the ultimate girls night out!
PLAN A: a traverse of the Peel and Locket ranges, dropping down to the Cobb (Fenella Hut) for Saturday night.
Thursday night: leave town around 6pm and stay at Trilobite or Mytton's Hut. This sets us up well for an early start on Friday.
Friday: Peel range traverse via Lake Peel Track - Mount Peel - Mount Ranolf - Mount Prospect - Mt Cobb - dropping down Cobb Lake Track to Fenella Hut. There are earlier exit options.
Saturday: time up sleeve for Peel Range over 2 days instead of 1. Or chill time in the Cobb. Or a couple of good day trip options from Fenella Hut. Spend Saturday night at Fenella Hut with the other ladies group.
Sunday: Locket Range via Waingaro Peak Track. Point 1390 - 1503 - 1672 - Mt Benson 1661 - 1631 - Iron Hill 1695 - Sylvester Hut and out the Sylvester Lakes Track.
This trip is for women with competence/confidence travelling with crampons and ice axe and recent experience in alpine conditions, high level of fitness (you donât have to be fast but need to be able to keep going for a big day), keen for a challenge.
