New Comment: One of my favourites!!!
by young_mephisto  6 Jan 2021
The Maumahoge Saddle is one of my favourite hikes so it is nice to get a new perspective. I climbed this peak during a beautiful heatwave in July 2020. A fairly straighforward hike from the saddle where you can continue along a very obvious ridge. Aim to approach the summit from the north-east as the southern approach is very steep with a near cliff like drop off. The summit is unremarkable but the views on a clear day are unbeatable.
