Track start is well sign posted from Kaimanawa rd via rough metal roads.  Steady climb to exposed ridgeline.  Excellent views,forest & ird song to be experienced. 2.5hrs in I came across the Umukarikari & the new Urchin Track interestion.   Doc signs says 3-4hrs back to carpark, Urchin Tops 2.5-3hrs & 4.5-6hrs to Urchin carpark.  From here in snow it was just a short tramp to sharp cone and then then the peak.  Very exposed now visability due to white out and very cold so please dress for alpine if winter.  Dropped back to interection for the Urchin track see next post.
