5 Jacks Point Rise, Jacks Point, Queenstown
It's nearing that time of the year again - last year's hike was excellent so I'm hoping for a repeat performances by both the weather and the group :-)
We'll drive up to the Remarkables ski field and walk up the easy track to Lake Alta. From there, we have options :-) eat lunch and lie in the sun, wander around the lake, go for a swim, and/or hike higher up. I'll be going higher if I can - the hiking gets harder (some scree and steep drops) but also more dramatic. I'll probably head onto the ridge above shadow basin and up towards the cones. Open to suggestions though.
I'll drive up and can take 7 in total. We'll probably need another volunteer to drive. If you need a lift to the start, leave a comment here and hopefully someone can oblige! I recommend you bring lunch, decent shoes/boots for walking on rock, sunscreen, clothing suitable for whatever the weather may bring, swimming stuff if you are brave, and a camera
