Ruapehu Trip Report (#6673)

  • Date(s) climbed: 26 Dec 1999

Great day all in snow. Clear blue skies all day long (burned the botom of my nose despite having covered up with sunblock). Satisfying summit, no wind. Climb was steep at the last 20 meters. Summit area is small. As far as I know, we were the only ones to summit that day. There were no other tracks in the snow, and no one was heading in that direction on the way down. Ice axe and skipoles essential for near summit.
