Home / Not the Gillespie Circuit, March 2021

Trip report: https://patricklam.ca/post/20210402-no-gillespie/. The planned logistics for the Gillespie trip were simple: rent a car from Queenstown, stay at the Wonderland Lodge in Makarora the night before, take a jetboat across the river, walk across the pass and to Crucible Lake, and take a jetboat back from Kerin Forks. MetService was predicting 116mm of rain at Siberia Hut when we’d be walking across the pass to there. So, instead we did Blue Pools Track, Brewster Track, and the Rob Roy Track.
