Mount Ngauruhoe Trip Report (#9037)

Made the ascent on a blistering sunny day, and the scoria nearly killed me, both with the effort of getting to the top, and the bombs falling around me! However, once at the top the views were amazing - the best I have ever seen, with stunning views across to Ruapehu, and over much of the North Island - I instantly forgot my pain of getting there. This was my ultimate walking experience - I would recommend this over the Himalayas! And such good fun getting back to the bottom as well, with my thousand yard boots on - 2 hours up, and 20 minutes back down.
