This is the easiest mountain to climb in all of Rarotonga (except for the rock cliff which requires climbing with hand and foot for about 10m of elevation). Above the cliff is the relatively flat mountain top with many small tracks criss-crossing. The view from the top is not spectacular but pleasant. Like all tracks on Rarotonga it is not well sign-posted.

A good group trek up Raemaru. Great views and easy going uphill track. There is a bit of rock climbing involved before you get to the top, which isn't too hard. Went back a second time for a bit of mountain running!

Nice easy uphill track up to the rock wall. The rock wall isn't too hard, there are ropes and pegs to use to get up the 10 - 15m wall and there is a beautiful view from up top. There is a rough track up to Maungaroa, it's flagged but the track is pretty rough & tricky. I turned around at the second highest peak on the ridge line.
