The track from Leon Kinvig hut in the Pohangina headwaters to Toka on the Ngamoko Range begins on the far side of the river and immediately climbs steeply until it briefly levels out, here. Then it starts climbing again.
The photograph I posted a couple of weeks ago looks back down the track from this spot.
