Ascent Trip Report

The weather was too much to handle this time. We began the day hoping to climb Mt Ruapehu, however the wind was too strong and the Turoa Ski Report was closed for the day so we looked to plan B. The forecast was slightly better on Ngauruhoe, so we gave it a shot. I got within 700 ft of the summit, but the wind was too strong and the visibility was poor. It was simply unpleasant to be up there, and probably not safe.
