Dasler Bivvy | Ruataniwha Conservation Park

Access via a steep climb that includes a chunky chain to drag up a 5 m rockface that luckily also has a few footholds. That’s about halfway, but the track flattens out slightly in the second half.

Originally called Cullers Bivvy, but later named after a local deer culler who died in an early helicopter crash.

One of the best examples of a two-bunk New Zealand Forest Service bivvy around, and DOC intends to maintain it without much modification, although it looks to have been re-piled more recently.
