Canterbury / Westland Section - Tasman Glacier Climbing Trip

img-event

Tasman Glacier Climbing Trip

The Upper Tasman Glacier is home to some of the most impressive summits in the Mount Cook National Park.  Peaks such as Elie de Beaumont, Malte Brun, The Minarets and De La Beche line either side of the Tasman Valley and provide excellent climbing opportunities for those who venture to its upper reaches. 

The plan on this climbing trip will be to fly to the head of the Tasman Glacier where we will be spending the week climbing some of the National Park's significant peaks before an enjoyable walk out via the Tasman Glacier. 

Sleeping arrangements will include staying in huts and bivvying.  As numbers for this climbing trip are limited, all climbers must pay flight costs (approximately $150) in advance to reserve their places. 

All climbers also should have sound NZ mountaineering skills such as experience with glacier travel, building snow anchors and a solid crampons / ice axe technique.
