Castle Rock


Castle Rock

Mark Schroeder and I went for a walk on the Port Hills this morning. It was a glorious cool autumn morning, just right for walking. Our plan was to go 2/3 of the way up the Bridle Path, then branch off to the Kahukura Track, which zigzags up the face below Castle Rock, just below the rocks on the right hand skyline. The track then goes along the back side of the crag and meets the road by the left ridge.

However, when we got to the turnoff we decided that the Bridle Path itself was going to be sufficient exercise, so we went to the top, had a 10 minute breather, and came back down. It was a great way to spend a lovely morning. We'll go back to the crag when we're a bit fitter, in two or three weeks.
