This is a view from the Lookout junction, looking over to the actual peak of Mt Karioi. As you can see the peak isn't too much higher, but the extra hour is rough-going.

Mt Karioi Track signage and my muddy leg.  To me the Lookot is the better goal than the actual mountain top...but you choose when you get to the lookout.
