Frew Saddle Bivvy, Frew Creek
Many of these West Coast bivouacs are really only emergency shelter, intended for poor weather conditions. Built as a NZFS B49 hut.
Kind of the next step up from a wooden tent. Not enough height to do anything more than crouch. The two-thirds height door indicates it will be cosy accommodation. Two people is full capacity. Three or more would need to be, or become, very good friends.
For additional information about access and the bivvy see the excellent Permolat Group remotehuts.co.nz website: Frew Saddle Bivvy.
