Mt Pirongia
« on: January 03, 2013, 10:29:01 AM »
Ascent via the Tahuanui Track (my favourite in the park) clear blue day, very hot. First few hours reasonably gentle climb then the last couple a little steeper but manageable. Track in good condition & not quite as tricky or muddy to negoiate (tree roots being the biggest issue) as some tracks in Pirongia.  I'v been to the summit previously but never stayed up there, today I did and was rewarded with great views and a spectacular sunset!
