A marked, cut (2018) tramping track follows terraces west from Nina hut before climbing steeply into Blind Creek. A further sidle & climbs follow until the creek rises to join the track. The old Devils Den Biv (2007) was located on the bushedge by the creek - a dark, cold spot, but the new hut has been built further up on the saddle itself. The climb to the saddle from the bushedge is poled, over low tussock but with some large holes. Significant windfall (2018) made this a slower trip
