Stories, information and comments from Turoa climbers
Story by Paul Mackenzie from Henderson, New Zealand, submitted on 09/05/2016
Great bush setting leading up to the mountain for the first 12km then the Mountain shows its brutal side the upward view of the mountain in front of you. Next 4Km very brutal but very rewarding just getting to each corner and knowing you are getting closer. Awesome views of the top, we went up in May which is cold but no snow or crowds, once snow season starts its snow chains for cars so good luck on a bike

Story by Dave Slomp from Hamilton, New Zealand, submitted on 08/04/2015
The numbers don''t tell the full story... Very easy for the first 10 km but over half the altitude gain is in the last 5 km. Some parts of this go well over 20% gradient for short stretches. Treat with respect!
