Aoraki Mount Cook
NEW EDITION DUE OUT 2017
The Aoraki Mount Cook district is the centre of New Zealand mountaineering containing the country’s highest peaks and largest glaciers.
Soaring above the bleached tussock plains of the McKenzie Basin, the high peaks of the Southern Alps have been the focus of New Zealand mountaineers for over 100 years. Everything a mountaineer could wish for in the area is encompassed by this guide – classic ice routes are detailed, as are the more recent flurry of superb climbs on the district’s neglected rock buttresses.
This guide covers known climbing routes up to June 2001 and provides a short description of access and a difficulty grading. For the first time, routes on the peaks of the Godley valley are included. This is the definitive account of the region’s mountaineering opportunities.
