This very impressive zigzag is actually a pathway, but there are steps- yes, although they are abandoned, there are steps. Truly.

So including this one is a bit dodgy, but the view is spectacular.

Northland is named for Viscount Northland, writes Ms Irvine-Smith, and he was killed in World War I. His father, Earl of Ranfurly, was New Zealand’s Governor from 1897 to 1904.
