This weekend I headed to the plains of Canterbury to complete a peak closer to home, number 4 of 52 peaks. Mt Alford, standing at 1171m is the largest of the mountains in the Alford range, nestled between Mt Somers and Winterslow to the south-west and the Mt Hutt range to the north
Month: January 2013
I headed off to the mountains near Lewis Pass for the first of the 52 peaks this weekend; The Devil’s Rampart (1740m).
Being the first peak in the 52 Peak challenge, I wanted it to start with a bang and in stunning weather. It totally came true, it was beautiful weather (30C+) and there was barely any wind in the valleys; nor on the tops. After picking past Nina Hut in a couple of hours, we continued onto Devil’s Den Saddle Bivvy which was where I started my peak attempt.
