Aoraki - Mount Cook (3754m) is a mountaineer’s mountain, a sustained and tough climb where the rewards match the commitment. The New Zealand Alps are the perfect venue to learn and consolidate alpine skills, the terrain is technical without the challenge of extreme high altitude, and there are endless options for beginner or experienced mountaineers. The aspiring climber needs strong alpine climbing skills to make Mount Cook€hievable, and we combine our climb with a 10 day Alpine Climbing Course which offers the solid grounding required to travel safely over snow , ice and rock€quire skills for glacier travel, rope work, self rescue and safe route finding. Following this up with a major alpine climb like Mt Cook-Aoraki will both test and consolidate these skills and offer a rewarding opportunity to summit the highest peak in the stunning New Zealand Alps.
