Climbed it as a side-trip on the Tongariro Crossing hike. The view from the top was incredible, with clear views of the Tongariro mountains/lakes, Taupo, and Taranaki in the distance. It is a straightforward climb but tiring due to the amount of scree on the slope; it took me 1.5 hours to get up and 15 minutes to get back down.
