We wanted to walk up Mt Arthur in Kahurangi National Park, which supposedly looks a little bit like Mt Owen (which we walked up in November 2011). The weather forecast suggested the clouds might clear off the top of Mt Arthur by the middle of the afternoon, so initially we headed along the valley and checked out the rock shelters. They have built bunks and a hut up under the rock shelters at Gridiron Gulch.
