This blog is about my travels. At home in New Zealand, in other parts of Oceania, North, Central and South America and in Europe.
A favourite spot of mine, at a particular time of year (the start of winter), is a waterfall called Margaret's leap which freezes to form a great place for ice climbing. There are a couple of fantastic little club huts only about 20 minutes walk away that are great to stay in. While most of Ruapehu is absolutely bustling with skiers during winter, the Eastern side of Ruapehu sees few visitors, in a large part due to the bumpy 4WD track and non-commercial nature of the area, which is sometimes referred to as 'the wild side'. These are all things I like about the Eastern side of Ruapehu. Things were getting colder and so I decided to organise a group to go Ice climbing.
We had a great time. We set up an anchor at the top of the waterfall and I rappelled over to set it up at the base.
I am a traveller from New Zealand. My blog is to inform friends and family about my adventures. I hope you enjoy it!
