South Temple-Ahuriri Circuit
The route takes you up the Temple stream south branch and its north branch crossing over a saddle of the Barrier Range into the headwaters of the Ahuriri, south east of Vee Notch Pass under Mt Huxley. A great campsite not far from the tarns provides a spectacular view of the headwaters of the Ahuriri. Continue down the valley before returning to the South Temple hut via Watson stream and col between pt 2222 and pt 2090 and out to roadend. The map below details our Feb 2013 route where in addition to the above we had side trips up Canyon and Little Canyon Creeks.
