A fairly intense weather system had just rolled through and there was a significant amount of snow on Aoraki.  At times we were concerned that the avalanche hazard might be too high and that the almost knee deep snow would slow us down too much but in the end we managed a 18 Hour Day on New Zelands highest Peak!

Climbing Aoraki / Mt Cook is never a easy push over, many things can deny us the summit.  But with a good weather forecast and strong motivation and fitness we can get you to the top!
