osatrikMy First New Zealand Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 23, 2014

My first peak in New Zealand! Nice day with good views, and this is a wonderful hike. Lots of folks on the track up, and the parking was spilling out onto the road by the time I was near the top. It had been raining for the previous several days, and the road out to the Rob Roy Glacier track required fording several streams, which I didn't dare do in the rental car, so this was the fallback.

My wife Sonya and I climbed Roy's Peak again, this time during the Kiwi winter. It was surprisingly mild weather, and we stayed up top to watch the sunset. A beautiful view from the top!

Hey Howie,

I saw some gorgeous photos from this hike on your website! Why not add one here? Roys Peak could use some fresh photo material :-) You don't seem to be too active on SP anymore actually, how come?

Cheers,

Rick

Desperately seeking views of Mt Aspiring but saw only the inside of cloud! Still I hear the views are amazing. Very steep ascent/descent of 4000+ on sloped track. Very sore next day.

Not much in the way of relief on the way up. Just a beeline to the top from the car. Great views however, and many friendly sheep.

My wife and I climbed this in cold, windy weather on our honeymoon, but the views across the lake from the top were fantastic! Highly recommended.

Hiked up in 1:40. Jogged back a little faster. Quite a fun and scenic hike and good to get the lungs working.

Started off under cloudy skies, light snow near summit with rain on the return back down. Excellent views from the top.

Did this one as a training hike in preparation for an attempt on Mt Brewster later in the week. Boots were not properly broken in so I got laid up with huge blisters for days. Great views from the top and an interesting grave about one third of the way up. Speights Old Dark Ale highly recommended on re-entry.

Climbed it on a beautiful sunny summer day in december. A bit of a kneebender at times, but a very easy and pleasant hike up with beautiful panoramas from the summit!
