Another of these interesting articles... https://www.nzgeo.com/stories/without-a-trace/ I would like to do Mt Owen soon but not by myself after reading this.
I think Mt Owen is fine, but not that particular route.
You think coming from the South is better than the North? I'll throw these in here too: http://www.stuff.co.nz/travel/destinations/nz/67884866/a-daunting-magical-climb-kahurangi-national-parks-mount-owen http://www.stuff.co.nz/nelson-mail/news/77285549/cavers-pledge-to-return-to-hunt-for-massive-mt-owen-system
Mt. Owen is on my wish list so haven't been there yet! Having said that, have watched a few youtube videos and prepared a trail. Definitely taking the Northern route on my first visit.
