From the December ascents trip we have received some photos: Peter’s guided climb of New Zealand’s highest mountain with Gary Dickson in person. We are allowed to share them here:

Fabulous views of the Southern Alps

Mid December is an excellent time for a trip up to Mt Cook – Aoraki, as the Linda Glacier Route is often still in good condition. A weather front potentially holding them back for a day, disappeared faster then expected and on the 11th Peter and Gary were the only climbers on that day to climb Mt Cook up the Linda, a very special feeling and an extra treat according to our guest.

4th Decemeber 2009 was a memorable day for Phil and Bill. A fantastic day of blue sky and cold conditions was perfect for their Mt Cook summit.  Well done lads Рjust reward for all the hard hours spent training for this special adventure.

Mount Cook, NewZealand

Mount Cook, New Zealand

Press release Friday 4th December: a very happy day for Wanaka locals having climbed to the top of Mt Cook. Our distinguished and honored returning mountaineering guests Phil and Bill have successfully been to the top of Mt Cook with  IFMGA guides Sean and Gaz.

Both Phil and Bill have been putting in the hard yards to be as fit as necessary for the demanding ascent – it was up to the weather gods to give a reasonable window for the 4some to get in, acclimatize, climb and then get out… tomorrow. A full moon and no wind, we promise more details soon – looking forward to hear them myself.

Good luck fellas.. that’s for the trip home now
