Upper Gridiron Shelter | Kahurangi National Park

Upper Gridiron Shelter is a unique place of accommodation, how many others have one wall of solid rock on a 60º angle, seemingly hand hewn by some novice sculptor who hasn’t quite got the art of fine finishing of the material totally sorted, chisel marks are still in evidence?

Outside, there’s a handsome comfy sofa, yes, hanging on chains, all well sheltered.

Those with some experience of earthquakes might prefer an alternative bed stop.
