Ascent Trip Report

I posit that no peakbagging trip to New Zealand is complete without climbing this most unique of mountains. It shows off in so many ways; there's the beautiful beech forest, the spectacular Granity Pass Hut, and of course the singular marbleized karst features up high. It's also challenging- I calculated at least 2100 meters/6900 feet of gain round trip from Courthouse Flat!
