    Depends on how you plan to get in there.... Waipawa Saddle is the worst route in the Ruahines. PERIOD. If you are flying in, the leatherwood around the tops is a prick, combined with the Spanish Bayonet towards Rangi Saddle and the tops - I wish you luck. River hunting is prosperous, albeit you will cover a few miles - and if heading downriver towards Wakelings you will get your balls wet.
    Hate to sound cynical - but best of luck beating your 5 pointer....

    ...The hut is really nice now though: HTC have just put on a new veranda and tank water. Plenty of firewood around and a newish stove/fireplace: it's a great place when its cold.

    My grandad drove a bulldozer half way up there for a hut site...
    You can still kinda see the track on the terrace....before they decided to put it where the chalet is now.
    Must of been about 50 years ago now.
