Steady climb, not technical at all. Farmland and open fell. Great views as we climbed of Lyttleton Harbour. Fleeting views between swirling clouds the other way from the summit.

Great climb! Trail not particularly technical... mostly farmland single track or dirt road. A few false summits to get your hopes up and down. Superb views from the top.
