Sat 1 Aug 2020 to Sun 2 Aug 2020

Organiser: Harry O'Neill

Trip will start at 7 with a 4 hour drive to the base of Mt Brown near Lake Pukaki. From there we will head up bush stream, following the south east ridge route for summiting Mt Brown, after a steep 800m climb up a creek we will reach lagoon basin, eta 4pm. Tents, Dinner, Ice skating! Following day depending on weather and attitude, a summit of Mt Brown followed by descending the same route, home in time for fish n chips. Tramp will potentially reach over 2000m so snow/ice gear necessary (available from the gear locker), warm clothes essential. Ice skates will be hired out before the trip for those who need them and bodies per tent will be kept to a maximum to keep warm overnight. 1-2 cars maximum, trip has potential to get sketchy so keeping the group small.
