Thanks to Mark Eatherley for adding this peak.
Mt Tapi (for short) is the highest peak in New Zealand outside the Southern Alps.
Ice axes and crampons are required during the winter months (June - August).
In warmer conditions most of the climb near the top is on scree (this is why some prefer to climb in winter to avoid scree).
In general, it is not a difficult climb, and in summer it is a relatively easy walk up with no special equipment required.
Thanks to Mark Eatherley for this description.
