Partner to Mt. Cook

by miov » Sat Jul 29, 2017 10:48 am

I plan to spend Oct and Nov 2017 in NZ and looking for partners to attempt Mt. Cook.
I'm 32 years old, practicing rock and alpine climbing for about 6 years including various high altitude and technical peak ascents around the world and I have most of the gear required for Mt. Cook.

Go to the Canterbury Mountaineering club Facebook page and ask them. Also try the New Zealand Alpine Club Facebook page.

There are always people keen there. BTW, October and November are generally pretty wild conditions as it is early season winds.

Good luck move fast and be safe.

According to Māori legend, Aoraki was a young boy who, along with his three brothers, were the sons of Rakinui, the Sky Father. On their voyage around the Papatuanuku, the Earth Mother, their canoe became stranded on a reef and tilted. Aoraki and his brothers climbed onto the top side of their canoe. However, the south wind froze them and turned them to stone. Their canoe became the Te Waka o Aoraki, the South Island, and their prows, the Marlborough Sounds. Aoraki, the tallest, became the highest peak, and his brothers created the Kā Tiritiri o te Moana, the Southern Alps.
