We had originally hoped to climb Amazon Peak in the Armoury Range, but the weather was pretty foul with snow and gales forecast, so we decided to tackle a couple of climbing objectives in the Lewis Pass.
One the first day, we made at attempt on Mt Technical, but had to turn back because of the high winds. Instead, we spent a bit of time playing around on a frozen mountain tarn — lots of fun!
With with the prospect of a small weather window later in the weekend, we decided to tramp up the magnificent Nina Valley. Basing ourselves at Nina Hut, we were posed for an attempt at the Devils Rampart.
We tramped back out the Nina Valley the following day and headed to Hanmer Springs for a much anticipated soak in the hot pools.
