Brass Monkey Bivvy | Lewis Pass Scenic Reserve
Sadly Brass Monkey Bivvy suffers from dampness and mould.
It is well named due to the altitude and lack of heating, ie, it would be cold for much of the year.
On a fine day there are outstanding views across the Maruia River valley, and down into One Mile Creek.
