Twin Peaks in New Zealand

During the trekking of Glitch on the Ridge, when we slept at Salisbury hut, we admired some rough crests on the right of Mount Arthur. We thought: "We must go there sooner or later!".
Well... Here we are, in 3 beautiful Autumn days, for the last trekking before the winter comes!
With Matteo and Sylvia there are a few friends: Silvano, Matteo (Riaci's Bronze) and, off course, Conillo.
