  South Island Gallery / Tramping / 2008-02 Mt Fyffe in the Kaikouras  


We went to climb Mt Fyffe above Kaikoura. Awesome views, and great weather which made our first involuntary night out in the bush almost comfortable! (we were benighted 500m from the hut and couldn't find the path around a gorge). There's some nice photos (including our biv) on Chris's website.
