General Discussion / Map of peaks
« Last post by turb on September 20, 2020, 01:04:57 AM »
Am I right that the old website had a map of all the peaks?
It would be great to see that back again.

(I'm a hobbyist-level web dev so happy to help out if I can)

 :) Great scenic track. alot of stairs at one point. lovely walking across the top, very scenic views across to the hen and chick islands, blue seas on a fine day. would be beneficial to have a good lunch and water with you and be moderatly fit as its a reasonable hardy walk. great track ups and downs.

Rainbow Mountain / rainbow summit mountain track
« Last post by Dinky on August 05, 2020, 03:26:12 AM »
 :) track very clearly marked, well maintained track reasonably easy track for anyone not so super fit - some familys with small children walking it. summit track is shared with mountain bikes going up only, only passed one but track is wide enough for easy passing. lovely 360 views at the top.  can clearly see Mt Tarawera, although the day was overcast for me. a couple of view points on the way up looks amazing with the colours and steam coming out.  lovely walk up and down.

Not very fit, a bit of a struggle up to the top, met some hunters on the way. Placed my stone on the WW11 memorial. Beautiful day views to Africa.

Humphries / Mt Humphries
« Last post by zappy on February 18, 2020, 03:01:09 AM »
Started from Kohi Saddle hot day & very dry. Track flat until the last grunt up Humphries. The return route is listed as 23.3 kms but is in fact 31 kms as I GPSsed it. Completed the track in 7.5 hours. Good views of Egmont and Ruapehu etc. Very remote location, saw no one on the track until i arrived back at Omaru hut where a group of ladies were doing the track through to the Whanganui River.

General Discussion / Any interest in all North island peaks?
« Last post by Spidey on February 13, 2020, 07:47:01 AM »
Hey guys im new in here. Over the next 6 months i will be making an attack of every single peak in the north island thats over 1500m in an endeavour for personal growth and to raise some funds for a local food bank nourished for nil and also Ignite Sports Trust for Kids, who help support 1000s of kids each year with sports, lifestyle, leadership amd mental health programs. Thats only the tip of the ice berg with them too.
im here asking if anyone is interested in joining me for some of the climbs? i enjoy travelling nz by myself and recently finished cycling tip to tip of the country, but its also nice to have some good company and share the experiences isnt it :) i would ask my friends but i think its selfish of me to ask, because most of them dont have the experience required to do what we do in as safe of a manner as required.
My next expedition is out across the Tongariro Crossing, hitting both Tongariro and Ngauruhoe, then up to Ruapehu, hitting each major peak up there. Ill likely be ascending up the eastern slope, not the conventional route up whakapapa, but up the Tukino side and between Whanagaehu and Mangatoetoenui glaciers. This will he in the middle of March and ill be doing the same route again in the middle of winter for those beautiful views.
Feel free to message me by email at oktoba2may@hotmail.com, or by cell, 0225657370.
Happy climbing everyone and safe travels. Jamie

Having never been to Queenstown before we booked a family trip there and took some friends too.  On my bucket list was to climb Roys Peak which I did with my buddy Chris.  I was just starting out with my outdoorsman dave YouTube channel in those days but please see the recording @ https://youtu.be/1xBka5mA10Q

Ben Lomond / Hiking to Ben Lomond summit
« Last post by Outdoorsman Dave :Youtube on January 08, 2020, 11:54:15 AM »
Having just come off the Routeburn the day before and looking for some more hiking local to Queenstown, my buddy Chris and I bagged Ben Lomond on a very clagged low visibility day.  A great little hike all the same which was recorded and posted to my YouTube channel @ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epKpe1qOx04
