... light and bright it was like a highlighter in the water. The mountain gets its name from the back drop of the lakes which display a variety of rock colour due to the oxides and rock type which make up the cliff face. It was a very nice walk for that time in the morning and on the way back to the car we even unearthed New Zealand's silver fern! Completely green on top, the ground facing side is a stark contrast in its silver/white colour - the Maori's used it to mark paths ...

Then we headed back, showered, headed next door for a ...
... this 'staircase'. Climbing the staircase was bleak. Tor was loving life, leading at the front - practically at the top before I'd made it half-way. After we'd made it up the staircase, I decided to have a look at the map. It had called 'Devil's Staircase' a hard ascent. Stage 4 was called a 'difficult' ascent. This meant that stage 4 was going to be worse then the staircase. This was difficult to commute. I can confirm that the difficult ascent was horrendous. It ...
