New Boardwalks
« on: June 23, 2009, 04:16:07 AM »
Did the std prescribed route up here again last weekend.  There are a number of new boardwalks now installed near the top over the muddiest sections of track which made the ascent a little cleaner and simpler than usual.

It is only a moderate climb gradientwise but still is a long hike at around 22km in and out.  At midday there was still frost in the shadows.

Some stunning views with great visibilty from the view vantage points you get just above the K Hut, all the way from little barrier in the north down to Mt Te Aroha in the south.

5.5 hours return including lunch at the top
