Wairere Falls Kaimai Range

Hell of a walk this one. Right out of the car and up 420 meters climb over 3.5k's with some of it almost vertical.
I guess it depends on how fast you climb it. We did it under half the stated time required and that probably explains the extreme amount of sweat I had to cope with. Frankly this is about my limit now a days for exercise. Rob did it a lot easier than me.
Highlights of the walk are the amazing rocks and beautiful; bush at the top. The falls were not exactly pumping seeing we are in the middle of a drought.

This is the river bed while close bye are rocks that are 10 times this big.
