Uncle Roddus Tramping Diary:Tramp No.30
Bobs Knob 22 November 2003
A common easy trip for the Christchurch Tramping Club, four of us left the car at the large pine by the highway and did the easy march up the Kowai river to the Memorial Hut, where we refueled before heading up the hill beside the hut to point 1211. The weather was cloudy and drizzly and the visibility on the tops was marginal and as we headed southwest along the tops, we realised just past point 1261 that we were heading off in the wrong direction towards lake Rubicon. After course correcting and with very little visibility, we thought we had arrived at Bobs Knob at point 1230, and dropped off the hill on a scree before encountering bush as we reached the river below. We then realised, as we walked back to the cars, that we had dropped off too early. No photos were taken on this trip.
