Summitting Aoraki/Mount Cook - 9th December 2011 15-Dec-2011 At 7:55:16 PM cruze
Thanks for the TR Paul. Out of interest you said that the more experienced parties started "short roping", did you mean simul-climbing? I tend to think of short roping as when a guide wraps a rope around his/her hand and keeps a client on a short rope with no running belay/anchor.

I met a couple of Aussie brothers from Brisbane a couple of months ago down in one of the huts. Shame on me for not remembering both their names, but pretty sure one of them was Patrick. Great guys, really liked their approach to the mtns. Hope to see them around the village this weekend.

Lydia (Bradey) was the first woman to climb Mt Everest without O2. We met halfway up the Ramp on Aspiring a month ago. NZ is full of amazingly talented individuals just getting on with it.
