Organisers: Robert Laurenson, Anita Radcliffe, Ivan Andrews
Difficulty: Very Hard, verging on extreme
Requires a very high level of base fitness and tramping/trail running experience.
Visit the most remote hut in the Tararuas, IN A DAY.
WARNING: not for the faint of heart. Plan B is doing the Northern Corssing in a day (usually a 3-5 day trip). This will involve around 15-20 hours of tough tramping/trail running.
Please train beforehand, as this is the equivalent of going to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and back up....TWICE . Over much more difficult and challenging terrair.
This trip has already happened!
