Steel ladder Tararua Peaks Feb 2010

The steel ladder between Tuiti and Tunui on the Tararua main range. DEFINITELY not for the faint hearted! The ladder was the easy bit really..the rock scramble and goat trail along cliffs had me freaking out! Still, Maungahuka at last after how many years? Definitely worth it!
