May26th'12. We went out on a shiny trip with the club into the Akatarawas, we started off at Cooks Rd entrance at the top of the Haywards. But about 3 hours into the forest we were blocked off by a large rock slide. With no machinery it would've been a good days work by hand to clear. So off we went back around and down to Totara Park entrance and came into the forest from the other side instead. Lunch at Orange Hutt, lots of easy mud, some nice climbs and loads of fun.
