4. Southern Main Range (Tararua Peaks Loop) Information

DESC Also known as Tararua Peaks. Start Otaki Forks run to Waitawaewae …There is a new track now .Then climb up Junction knob (v big climb) along the main range including the infamous ladder (turn right at top of ladder) turn right at Bridge Peak for the descent of glory

Otaki Forks -> Y2YY -> Andersons -> Maungahuka -> Bridge Peak -> Field -> Otaki Forks

There is now a very steep deviation track between OF and Y2YY. This would make the route slower…One can still take the old track by the slip but one would need to be careful…Its a huuuge slip…

TIME IT TOOK US 12 hours (Record is 8)
