Located at Muldoon corner midway on SH 2 from the Plateau and Featherston.  A newly well made track that zig zagged up to a very very windy trig too just 12min.  This was our last peak for the day as we needed to travel the 62km back to Orongorongo Valley (see Mt Mathews post) as we had been invited by the local private hut owners to join then this morning for their new years party. 

We tramped back into the valley bush by 8:30pm to an already happy crowd for a spit roast, roast veg and lots of liquid refreshment party by bon fire.  Had a great time in this amazing valley of amazing private hut owners.  Peter & Dianne of Xanado hut took us in for what was now our 2nd night in a hut to sleep all the merryness off and then lavished us with bacon and eggs for breakfast later that day before we headed off to bag Climie in the new year.  How good is peak bagging!
