Cookie got me up super early at the hut. I’m the kind of person that wouldn’t wake up til the afternoon if it weren’t for an alarm, so up at 6am is a bit of an ordeal to be honest! But still, once your eyes are prized open enough to see the view you soon wake up and realise where you are. Pretty cool to wake up above the clouds eh?
After sweating out half my body weight yesterday, we decided to get up early today and make some progress before it got too hot. On our way up Waiopehu here, just a short climb above the hut.
