Manawatu-Wanganui mountains highlights

"A very nice walk up a run down and over grown path and than up a short volcanic scree slope. Had a great little lunch on the rim of the U shaped crater. Then descended by bush bashing back to the car parked on the mangatepopo road." - Pukeonake, nzclimber, Feb 14, 2015
"Headed up from the top skifield tow on the Turoa side carrying skis with me which were left at the crater rim. Climbed to the high point then returned to my skies then skied back down to the skifield. Did this the previous year as well. Dates are approximate but it was in October each time." - Paretetaitonga, glennj, Oct 31, 1979
