Mount Cook
Mount Cook (Aoraki)-43.595170.142222223754
  • High Peak (3754m-43.595170.14222222)
  • Middle Peak (3717m)
  • Low Peak (3593m)
Mount Cook (or Aorangi, Maori for "cloud piercer") is the highest mountain of New Zealand's wild Southern Alps. Mount Cook is a complex mountain with several summits, ridges and faces. Highest summit is North or High Peak (3754m with Middle Peak (3717m) to the south of main peak and Low Peak (3593m) further south being the two other main summits. 2000m high Carolina Face (SE) between East Ridge (of Middle Peak) and Zurbriggen (main NE Ridge) is probably the most striking feature. On the other side of the mountain Sheila (NW) and Hooker (SW) Faces are also very impressive. Its European name was bestowed in 1851, in honour of Captain James Cook. The true summit collapsed in 1991, thus the mountain is now few meters lower than it used to be (which tells a lot about the quality of the rock in the area).

Normal route. Linda Glacier route is the easiest way to the summit. The route ascends Linda glacier between Zurbriggen's and the North Ridges. It skirts beneath ice cliffs known as the "Gun barrels" (and joins Zurbriggen's ridge at the last band of rock known as the summit rocks (crux). The route sports over 3000 vertical metres from the road end. It has significant objective hazards, i.e. several corridors of ice avalanches have to be negotiated. Same route. .
East Ridge. Mixed, NZ4/D; 1550m. 1938-01-01First ascentDan Bryant & Lud Mahan, 1938-01.
Popular technical route on snow, ice and rock. Leads from the Grand Plateau via East Ridge up the Middle Peak (3717m), from where a traverse along summit ridge to high peak and down via Linda Glacier route.
North Ridge. Mixed, NZ4-/D-; 1700m. 1894-12-25First ascentGeorge Graham, Jack Clark & Tom Fyfe, 1894-12-25.
From Plateau Hut (2200m) along Linda glacier to the Green's Saddle (3348m) between Mount Dampier (3409m) on the north and High Peak of Mount Cook on the south. From the saddle difficult climb along north ridge (loose rock) to summit. It is also possible to climb from Hooker valley to Green saddle.

North side
North shoulder. Ice, NZ3+; 1200m 15-18h .
Normal route. The easiest route on Mount Tasman, more technical than Linda glacier route on Mount Cook though. Not as frequented as Silberhorn arete. Starts from Pioneer Hut following Albert Glacier to Marcel Col (2987m) between Mount Lendenfield (3194m) on the west and Mount Haast (3114m) and Mount Dixon (3004m) on the east. From the col traverse Mount Lendenfeld and descend to Engineer Col (3093m) and ascends steep the North Shoulder of Mount Tasman.
Torres-Tasman traverse. NZ5; 1200m 2 days .
Classic. New Zealand's premier ridge traverse, varied climbing on an aesthetically beautiful ridge. Starting from Pioneer Hut the route traverses the Fox Neve to Katies Col on NW of Tasman, then ascends Mt. Torres (3165m) via the West Ridge. From the summit of Torres a mixed exposed ridge is followed to the Torres/Tasman Col where a bivouac is normally necessary. From the col a gradually broadening ice arete leads to the summit of Mt Tasman. Descent is via the North Shoulder of Tasman back to Pioneer Hut.
Silberhorn Arete. Ice, NZ3+/4/AD+/D; 70; 1100m 16-20 if pitched .
Classic. Classic ice route from Plateau Hut, most climbed route on Tasman. Technically more advanced than the North Shoulder route and regarded as one of New Zealand's finest climbs. From Grand Plateau via Silberhorn Ridge to Silberhorn peak south of Tasman (steep and exposed snow/ice, NZ 3). From Silberhorn traverse to Tasman. Ice up to 70 degrees.
