Scaling New Zealand's most dangerous mountain has always been on my bucket list, especially as my wife is from Taranaki. Committing to a sunrise summit meant our band of hikers set out in the cool January darkness. Despite January being a summer month here in NZ, this manga (mountain) still had a snow covered peek. The decent, although more gruelling than the climb was eased by the dark green native bush we could now see in the morning light, the dense dewy fernery creating a magnificent patchwork coat.
