Outstanding outlook

 

After a sweaty grovel in the flood-damaged North Elcho Stream, a tributary of the Hopkins in Ruataniwha Conservation Park, we called it a day on some ledges at 1900m. Here, Sam Bosshard relaxes in his sleeping bag while taking in the view to the Hopkins River. We climbed Mt Ward the next morning and enjoyed a calm sunny summit.
