View from the bottom of Te Arapiki a Tāne.

Also known as the Summerhill Stairs, the 222 steps curve down the Anzac Cliffs, from Vaucluse Heights, to the Manawatū River below.

Chris Whaiapu chose the name Te Arapiki a Tāne and explained, they "were named after Tāne Mahuta to recognise his achievements, as well as people today who embrace the spirit of active living." (Stuff, 19 Dec. 2018)

According to a Stuff article dated 9 January 2018; "the informally dubbed "Stairs of Lindos" references the climb to the acropolis and medieval fortress of Lindos, on the Greek island of Rhodes in the Aegean Sea. Parts of that stairway have no railings and neither has this – yet."
