Thats a pretty savage walk alright man. 1 hour to get there from the carpark. 3 hours to get to the top and 15 minutes to get back down again. Only done it once.

Did that walk during august of this year, one of the girls with us nearly got blown off the side of the mountain it was blowing a blizzard, definitly the most dangerous thing i did in NZ but well worth it for the views.

You did it during the summer. Only little girls do it during the summer. I was knee deep in snow when I climbed it.

Thats well hard!!!
