An Age-Diverse Traverse of Travers

30th May – 2nd June, 2020

Paul Maxim sent this poem by Jack O’Carroll:

The group of nine set out across Lake Rotoiti,

With Hamish telling them of the five species of beech trees,

Up summit creek to a high camp on tussock,

Under Travers’ shadow and the scree slopes that lead to it,

A scramble up bluffs and a bit of a climb,

Over scree, rock and patchy snow while the weather stayed fine,

The age-diverse bunch knocked it off by lunch,

And picked their way down the northern couloir,

Knowing the John Tait would not be too far.

Party members
Ted, Jack (scribe), Siobhán, Sean, Kristy, Jade, Michael, Nina and Paul.
