1  North Island Trip Reports and Comments / Pinnacles, The / Tackling the Pinnacles Date: February 28, 2019, 11:34:20 AM
Did the Pinnacles with a dear friend in one day. We started off early in the morning, heading out of Auckland and started the climb at 7:30 am. We found that a lot of work has been done lately due to the storms had damaged the track down the bottom. There are a few areas where climbing is required and feels like most part, you are just climbing stairs. Reached the top and had a quick lunch before heading back down. Did the trip in 7 hours. It is definitely one of the easy and most well-maintained tracks.

We were visiting the area and found that this particular walk would be relatively easy. So with three children (ages 3, 6, 10), we started our walk. Turned out to be a little harder than originally thought and with a fair bit of effort and bribery, we all reached the top. It was a shame that it was overcast and light rain as seeing the white-tipped mountains would have made the view awesome! Glad that we packed the right gear as the weather turned and we walked back down in the rain and feeling cold.
