NM Section - Kakapo Peak (Ladies Trip)
Kakapo Peak (Ladies Trip)
One for the ladies in the club, led by Liz Roberts.
Climb Kakapo Peak (1783) from Fenella hut via Waingaro Peak.
Where the hell is that???
Well its up the Cobb Valley above the Cobb Reservoir and looks like a really nice ridgeline above the bush.
Saturday will be a leisurely walk from the Cobb Valley road end to Fenella hut (12 bunk, gas at hut, one serviced hut ticket, altitude 1100 m). This route takes approximately 4 hours.
On Sunday aim is for a relatively early start to climb poled route to skirt around Waingaro Peak and gain the ridge to Kakapo peak.
If we make good time we could traverse the ridge beyond Kakapo and see how close we can get to Snowdon Peak.
We will return the same way and walk down the Cobb back to cars and out Sunday afternoon.
Depending on participants there could be an option to leave Friday afternoon to get to Fenella hut Friday night and use all of Saturday to get along ridge. Spending two nights at Fenella hut and out Sunday.
