Great hike! Trail is easy to find, just look for the sign off the gravel road, and is well defined and easy to follow. It is steep and slippery in places from lose dirt and pine needles etc. The top 1/3 requires some climbing, I'd call it 'technical scrambling'. Some ropes kindly installed in some difficult spots but some climbing up rock required. Definitely need to be sure-footed and ok with heights as you're on the sharp ridge for last 1/4 or so. Took 2.5 hours so quicker than Te Manga and Te Kou but I'd say it's slightly more difficult.

Amazing hike. Took us about 5 hours (moderate fitness). Good track with enough markers to find the way up but be careful not to lose the track coming down as we went the wrong way a couple of times. We suggest you bring some coloured plastic or cloth ties to mark some of the more obscure places to guide you back down. Well worth the effort. Definitely avoid when wet!

Its a pretty amazing track, there is a good climb through the bush until you get up on to the ridge line where there are a couple 5 - 10m rope climbs. Just below the summit there is a 40 - 50 m set of ropes that lead you to the summit. The views are amazing from the summit. I highly recommend some confidence on ropes, only going on good weather, decent level of fitness and a climbing buddy! I wouldn't tried the end section alone.
