 The common ascent route starts from Tongariro‚Äôs South Crater entrance, after climbing up out of the Mangatepopo Valley. In summer, aim for the central lava rib; the climb is considerably more entertaining in winter when there is snow or, better yet, ice, usually up the shallow gully that leads into the crater area. Watch for slides when the afternoon sun warms these slopes.
