Yeats Ridge Hut, Toaroha River
Yates Ridge Hut is not quite on the ridge, but does have a great view of Zit Creek, Adventure Bivvy standing out clearly next to a major waterfall on the other side of the creek, and the steep climb to Zit Saddle if the clouds are high.
The hut is currently more of the slightly leaky garden shed variety, no wall linings or insulation or heating of any kind, but then volunteers from the Permolat group are starting to do it up. A good place to get away from any crowds.
For additional information about access and the bivvy see the Permolat Group remotehuts.co.nz website: Yeats Ridge Hut.
