New Zealand in March?

    Ok so this is kind of a hail mary, but I'll be in New Zealand from the end of February until the end of March (maybe even April), and am damned keen on doing some climbing in the southern alps. Specifically, Mt. Cook and Mt. Aspiring. Nothing crazy, the standard routes are preferable (having never climbed in the range before), but the peaks are too beautiful to pass up.

    I've already talked with Simon about finding partners in NZ, but I figured I'd throw it out to the club in case anyone else was crazy enough (and had the disposable income!), to fancy two-three weeks or so down there.

    It's a random shot, but no harm in throwing that out there.

    Oh, I can also offer a free trip to Hobbiton.

    I'm trying the photos again--the ones that didn't work in the other thread.


    Photos are pasted ok.  If you get here and don't see them it didn't work.

    Here is an article on Mt Cook.  The video contains a couple of guide names.
