A moderate A to B tramp of 5 to 6 hours using part of the round the mountain track passing Golden Rapids and, if desired, Silica Rapids then the Whakapapaiti Hut. If shortened or aborted due to weather then it is a long way back out using the inwards route but if the river is high there is no alternative but to retrace the route.
