    - For you out of towners

    Weather looks perfect for a summit climb for Tuesday 30th August and Wednesday the 31st of August, Thursday looks a bit cloudy and Friday it all turns to shit around lunch. No climbing Friday onward for a while so make the most of the next few days.
    The following Tuesday the weather looks to open up again for climbers Tuesday the 6th of September

    I am looking at climbing Mt. Taranaki this weekend *April 24th or 25th.
    Are conditions still favorable or is it more like winter conditions there at the moment?

    Can you tell me please which day would be the best to climb MT Egmont/Taranaki between this coming Saturday (1st of Sept) and Tuesday the 4th?


    (editor replies: Barnabas, Saturday is much much better forecast than Tuesday. If you can wait, there should be stable weather around 4th September)

    Hi a question, is possible climb this Monday 25 of June?

    Editor replies: Edison, this would be a very bad day with blizzard conditions and snow to low elevations (below 1000m). I strongly urge you to delay until Wednesday at the soonest and to be prepared for alpine conditions and strong winds. A winter ascent of Mt Taranaki is a serious proposition.
