The Southern Alps of New Zealand are wild and pristine with varied and diverse climbing challenges - sufficient to provide any climber with countless years of worthy objectives. Adventure Consultants is based in the small alpine town of Wanaka, nestled beneath these rugged mountains. We have close access to many different mountain areas that enable us to optimise the climbing opportunities around the weather systems and conditions.


We offer guided ascents of Mt Cook, Mt Aspiring and Mt Tasman as well as an Ascents Week and a four day Alpine Adventure.


AORAKI / MT COOK 12,316ft / 3,754m

• Technically challenging ascent on ice, snow and rock

• Long and varied climb on New Zealand’s highest mountain

The highest peak in New Zealand, Aoraki/Mt Cook is a popular objective and we ascend via the classic Linda Glacier route. The climbing is strenuous and of moderate technical difficulty; the summit is one of the most satisfying and exhilarating in Australasia. Aoraki is truly Himalayan in size, protruding 3,000m from the valley floor.


MT ASPIRING / TITITEA 9,950ft / 3,033m

• Most aesthetic mountain in the Southern Alps

• Variety of quality routes to climb, from moderate to hard

Mt Aspiring was named Tititea (‘glittering peak’) by the indigenous Maori and is often referred to as the ‘Matterhorn of the South’. This beautiful mountain offers various routes of high quality, from the grand but attainable North West Ridge, to the divine arête of the South West Ridge.


MT TASMAN / HORO KOAU 11,378ft / 3,498m

• Classic ascent of long snow and ice route

• New Zealand’s second highest mountain

Mt Tasman is considered by many to be the most beautiful peak within the Mt Cook region and the ascent has the technical character to make it truly memorable. The routes are predominantly snow and ice with classic ridges and steep alpine faces. New Zealand’s second highest peak, it is a major ascent and with its proximity to Aoraki/Mt Cook the views are unforgettable!


ASCENTS WEEK

• Climb peaks at your level all week

• Choose a variety of objectives or one main objective

The Ascents Week appeals to those who have a hankering to climb peaks with the benefits of a personalised guiding service. Whether you want an easy traverse across the glacial peaks or to work on a steep technical climb, the 1:1 guide ratio provides ultimate flexibility to match your schedule.

Traditionally the Ascents Week has provided an opportunity for climbers to focus primarily on their favourite discipline, including New Zealand’s steep ice and/or rock routes or an assortment of the best classic climbing we have to offer. You may choose to bring along a friend and both enjoy the professional services of your guide on the less technical routes, or benefit from the dedicated leadership of your guide for something big and spicy!


ALPINE ADVENTURE

• Ideal first-time mountain experience

• Climb your first mountain and learn foundation climbing skills

Experience the mountains for the first time on this incredible journey into the alpine wonderland.

This exciting trip features travelling on glaciers, camping in tents and climbing your first mountain!

The journey begins when we fly by helicopter into Mount Aspiring National Park and introduce you to primary mountaineering techniques. We then trace a route beneath the beautiful Mt Aspiring/ Tititea along the Bonar Glacier.

The highlight of the trip is a climb to the summit of Mt French. We then descend into the Matukituki Valley and walk out through the ancient beech forests. Overall this is a fantastic opportunity to get a taste for the high hills without an extended time commitment and is suitable for folks with good pack-fitness.
