Summit view from Roys Peak. Wanaka township on right, looking north along the lake to Makarora in the middle. On left Glendhu Bay and the Matukituki valley, with Mt Aspiring in the distance. Track starts near the middle of the photo at the carpark (white area between the trees) and is a solid three hours uphill to 1578m. Farmland at the bottom, alpine tussocks at the summit. 2 knee-jarring hours back down.
