Ngauruhoe's Far Side
I chose to go up more or less up the centre of the view you can see here, and it took me about an hour and a half of steady plodding to the top.
Ngauruhoe was last erupting from 1973 to 1975, during which time it occasionally threw out blocks of lava to a distance of about 3 kilometres. If you click on the image to enlarge it you will see people on the crater rim that give an idea of the scale of the image.
