This might well be the first peak I ever bagged, in the days beofre you had to go on the guided trip.  That said, we still had to pay to do the walk.  I recall we tried to drive as far up the 4WD road as possible, buit gave up and walked from the bottom.

I also remember the trucks of tourists driving past us on the 4WD tours.  I could they were thinking "you guys are mad waling up!  don't you wish you were in here with us?     And all the time we were holier than thou and were thinking "you guys are mad doing it the lazy way, you're missing all the fun!"

The top was was magical though.  I'll never forget scree run down the crater, and the absolute silence inside the crater.
