Would make sense to add this Mt peak along with the other two in same area. Easy to find and get to, lovely bush track, interesting massive old trees including a 1000year old Rata that you can walk through, Mod to hard because its straight up but take your time and its fine, The Tawa loop track adds another 30min if desired.

The track continues a further 5.3km along the Ngamoko – Kaitawa track to the Kaitawa Road being an alternative start point. This track could also be part of the entire tramp around the whole lake avoiding the road but would take a good 6 plus days.
