Hard time on the scree slopes
Eventually, we made it down to the valley. Another 4 hours of walk and we reach the warm hut, where our TA friends already made a fire.
Tonight, 12 people will squeeze in the 6 bunk beds New Waiau hut.
It was a very hard day. At some moments, it seemed as we would not make it, that it was too hard (and too wet and too cold). But one step at a time, here we are!
In the evening, a nice couple of Czech living in NZ joined us. They share their wine and their Nutella with us, and it's a perfect end to such a nice day.
26 kilometers later, we reach Anne hut, a new hut with 2 bedrooms. The 4 American girls are already there, as well as a French guy that decided to go hiking a few days in the mountains.
The answers to all these questions will be in the next post, probably from Arthur's Pass.
Have a good day or evening dear readers!
