Looking up Mt Ngauruhoe from the South Crater plain track.  The easist way up is the left-side ridge, while the fun fast way down is right of the white stripe.

    Arriving at Mangatepopo car park around 8:30, we got one of the last marked bays. By the time we’d got our boots and sunscreen on, there were just a couple of campervan spaces left.
