    A lot to consider before approaching a task of this magnitude. Kudos to those who have accomplished it.

    Helen Clark "climbed" Cook, so why all the scary fuss?

    My next door neighbour has done Cook when he was living in Dunedin. His shed has heaps of ropes and other sundry shit for climbing. From memory he has done a few others as well, fit bastard he is.

    Never climbed Mt Cook but done the trio in central the North Island as a student then as a soldier when I lost some good mates in the 90's.

    I was on cse in Waiouru during that tragedy. I knew one of the instructors.
    He took a bit of flak and got the finger pointed at him when people looked for someone to blame.

    It didin't help their case that George Iwani (sp?) survived by himself not far away. I've camped not far from where the army did and have walked over from Tukino to Whakapapa in blizzard conditions. It can be bloody cruel up there.

    Greg Duley has done it https://m.facebook.com/story.php?sto...210502381&_rdr

    Personally I prefer buying a lift ticket and boarding on the white stuff, be a great achievement.
    Went to buy some camouflage trousers the other day but I couldn't find any.
