A beautiful day for a walk, so thought I'd explore this peak for the 1st time. The info provided in the peak bagging description is spot-on: found Scotsman gully track & then up the summit track, taking the shortcut track with plenty of calf burn. This route may not being officially maintained but thankfully someone has dealt to the gorse.;D I'm slower than most who log on peakbagging.co.nz & was surprised to reach the summit in under 55 mins. That said, the shortcut track was hard-packed after the recent dry spell; can imagine it's not such easy going when wet. Awesome views along the track & from the summit, a great walk.
