Did it in Dec in 1978 with Ken R.Not that recent but a few memories
-worst sunburn i ever had
-out for 16 hours FR Hut to FR return (is FR still there ?)
- hardly any belaying
-lots of snow
- worst part was the afternoon sludgy plod - walking our slackline- up the Bonar.
- gained & left NWR by the 'ramp' anout 1/2 way along the ridge. I think we went over some rocks on the way up, snow on the way down,BIIIG jump over bergshrund / softsnow flop at base
- aforesaid jump precipitated by big chunk of ice falling down slope near us.

Climbed SWR in Jan 81 a more dramatic climb but it was a colder day; descended NWR - a lot firmer snow than 78 & far more enjoyable. Just shows how conditions can vary!

Other hint wear light shoes eg volleys for the walk up the Matukituki valley & take time out to enjoy it. it is just a nice place! There are some big trout there too...
