A more alpine excursion, the South Ridge begins at the head of Mangatepopo Valley at the entrance to South Crater. Scramble along over blocky ground to the summit. It is also possible to gain the upper South Ridge and summit by climbing directly out of the head of South Crater; neither conditions, views nor sunshine are likely to be as agreeable as on the ridge.
From the summit, either descend to rejoin the Crossing, or avoid the crowds altogether
and descend a scree slope down the mountain’s western flank towards the
long ridge that hems the Mangatepopo valley on its northern side. A faint track leads back to the car park.
