Rangitoto Summit
« on: May 24, 2008, 01:16:02 AM »
Taking the Ferry from downtown Auckland on a brilliantly fine Auckland day we climbed to the summit (259m asl) in 40 minutes via the most direct route.  The track is a little rough with scoria and the day was very hot obviously made worse by the sun light being soaked up by the black scoria. It is a gentle rise to the summit with the exception of a reasonably steep final 5 minutes to the top. 

Plenty of decking and observation points at the top.

We then took the loop road back to the ferry which was a long, hot trek. 2 hours all up.
