Bob’s Bivouac

Third time’s lucky. After two unsuccessful attempts (the first time, the weather turned me back; the second time, an exhausted member of my party), I finally reached the biv. I left my car at the car park at Wooded Gully Campsite and headed to the tops via Wooden Gully Track. Once on the tops, it’s a beautiful track along the main ridgeline all the way via pt1043, pt953, and pt1046 to Bob’s Bivouac. It’s all well-marked and easy-going tramping; the only a little bit difficult part is the final descent to the biv from the main ridgeline, which was very muddy and wet. The actual biv is very charming, with some good camping spots nearby, although not very flat. I came back via Ridge Track, which is not as exciting as Wooden Gully Track but is quicker and a bit shorter.

About the Author

I lived a pretty ordinary life for a while. I did my studies, my second studies, my third studies, my first job, my second job, and my third job. I wasn’t really sure what’s going on so, in 2014, I left my home country (Czechia) to learn about the world. I’m still not sure what’s going on but I enjoy it much more. I lived in a few countries before settling in New Zealand.
