The ascent of Mt Manganui 2

Tourist stuff today and an attempt to climb Mt Manganui for the second time (first successful attempt made in 2019).

The route has been changed significantly so unless you have mountain goat-like qualities, the ascent is extremely strenuous! The past choice of ‘easy’ and ‘steep’ routes have been replaced with two ‘steep’ routes and two ‘steep and challenging’ routes; so in the heat of the day, took the option to walk round the Mount and take a few photos…just spectacular!
