      ... Kirsty decided to take a breather part way up and sat down to have a banana. She told me to carry on and she would come up at her own pace. So I finished climbing to the summit.

      At the top there were amazing views across the lower lake with Mount Ruapehu as the backdrop, the other way you could see the upper lake with Mount Doom as it's backdrop, and then looking back over the path we had walked you could see for miles and miles across the forests of the national park.

      ... of woodchips – this is industry on a scale you rarely see in New Zealand, let alone in the middle of nowhere. I want to stop for eggs and coffee in Kawerau, but this is the grimmest town centre I have seen yet. There are two bottle shops, both with roller doors protecting the facades and heavy-duty mesh on the windows. It’s an odd ghetto aesthetic for a small town set among green pine-forested hills which loom overhead, their tops lost in the cloud.

      ... see devils staircase. What we thought was it was a mere single step to this monster. 200m, moderate to difficult grade and it's going to take an hour.

Half way up, I'm exhausted. We've just past the 5km mark we can't go back cause is would be pointless but going forward is taking a lot of strength. One of ...
