MOUNTAINEERING

Peaks Ascents | Mountaineering Courses | Technical Climbs

Every single mountaineering adventure starts with a strong desire to climb a peak, a face, a buttress or a ridge…. Standing on top of a peak is a feeling hard to describe, but the journey to this summit is probably what mountaineering is about: planning, committing, sharing, pushing the limits, learning and laughing!

A great alpine adventure with Summit Explorers Mountain Guides!

Peak Ascents

Technical Climbs

This is one of those trips where probably the guide is way more excited than his client! It is also an adventure where a “rope team” takes place over a guide/client relationship…  Think steep, exposed, straight lines, commitment, remoteness … and add snow, ice, rock in the same basket… you end up with some of the master pieces of mountaineering in New Zealand and probably in the World!

Some climbers have that as a life time dream, others climb them on a regular basis… one thing for sure it is as attractive as it is  intimidating!

Here are a few suggested technical climbs throughout the Southern Alps…
