Ascent Trip Report

After the ferry crossing, we embarked on the broad summit route to Rangitoto. It was a rather hot and humid day, and we were quite overdressed for the occasion. It was all easy (if sweaty) walking, and we overtook most of the crowds that were ambling up amongst the lava blocks and squat trees. On the summit there were some decent but slightly hazy views over the bay and to Auckland.
