The dream of Erica Hut is no more.

Funding was always the key to a new facility and all options seem to close off at the same time on this project. The New Zealand Alpine Club in its wisdom swallowed up the future projects fund to pay for general hut maintenance, the trust fund decided that the access to the hut site was too risky, and the Department of Conservation said that no funding would be available for many years.

Oh well, at least it is a beautiful valley to camp in!
