Brendan making the final few moves to the summit of Aoraki Mt Cook New Zealands highest peak at 3724m.  We climbed the Sheila Face a 700m rock face and only just put our crampons and boots on 100m below the summit.  Our day finished after a 1000m traverse along the summit ridge to Middle Peak where we spent the night in an improvised bivvy. Thankfully it was a mild night.  #mountaineering #southernalps #aoraki #aorakimountcook #firstlightguiding #iceclimbing #climbing #adventure #expedition…

How will the sunrise catch you today? Will you be wandering around on a glacier?  Wanderings on the Linda Glacier in the early hours of the morning bring some pretty beautiful colours to life.  #mountains #climbing #aoraki #mtcook #lindaglacier #firstlightguiding #nzmga @rab.equipment @outfitters_newmarket @lowe.alpine #sunrise #southernalps #newzealand

The Sharp end of a Short Rope looking down the line on our descent from Plateau Hut via Cinerama Col. This is the Boyes Glacier just under the southern side of the Anzac Peaks.  The Boyes Glacier ends abruptly and turns into an endless scree ride down to the moraine covered Ball Glacier.  #AorakiMtCook #PlateauHut #SouthernAlps #NewZealand #Mountaineering #Adventure #NZMGA #RabNZ #OutfittersStore #SharpEndofAShortRope #MtCook #FirstLightGuiding #GavinLangPhotography #SonyImages #SonyA7R…

Check out the video from our world wide antics during 2017 and hang on for the ride!!!  Link in Bio...

We hope to share some memorable moments with you in 2018 and create some new memories.  Thanks to all who had faith in First Light Guiding to deliver.

Murchison Hut.  I dont think Ill be visiting this hut or location anytime soon or possibly ever again. Considered to be on unstable and unsupported rock - since the glacier below is down wasting - and with cracks widening and the hut floor shifting enough to be of major concern. The hut closed some months ago but I still lament its demise. We are unlikely to see an alternative spring up anytime soon. What a loss.  #mountains #murchisonhut #nzac #nzmga #murchisonglacier…

Wanderings on the Linda Glacier in the early hours of the morning bring some pretty beautiful colours to life.  The Linda Glacier has been hammered pretty hard this summer during a particularly dry and warm spell. Good access on Wednesday gave some confidence that it would last a little longer. #mountains #climbing #aoraki #mtcook #lindaglacier #firstlightguiding #nzmga @rab.equipment @outfitters_newmarket @lowe.alpine #sunrise #southernalps #newzealand

Time for a local multi pitch trad climb. Chinamans Bluff should see a high of 24 degrees tomorrow. Its been 10 years since I last climbed there.  Looking forward it.  #climbing #rockclimbing #queenstown #wanaka #newzealand #chinamansbluff #ravagesoftime #chinkinshiningarmour #firstlightguiding #gearfreak #camalots

The sunset view from our bivvy on Middle Peak of Aoraki. It was a stunning evening with a temperature around zero and only a light breeze.  #mountains #aoraki #middlepeak #firstlightguiding #hookerglacier #sunset #climbing #expedition #newzealand #southernalps #aotearoa  @rab.equipment @outfitters_newmarket @lowe.alpine @b_p_clark

Negotiating the final crevasse bridge en route to Empress hut with Brendan Clark.  Empress hut is perched below the Sheila Face of Aoraki Mt Cook at 2500m and is New Zealands highest piece of real estate.  #mountaineering #climbing #adventure #firstlightguiding #aoraki #hookerglacier #southernalps #newzealand #biophilia @rab.equipment @outfitters_newmarket @lowe.alpine @b_p_clark

Reaching Alpamayo Col for a beautiful sunset. By the time climbers reach this point the only thing that remains is the final 500m steep face climb to the summit.  Come and make your own adventure in Peru in June/ July 2018.  #FirstLightGuiding #Expedition #Mountaineering #WeAreRab #TheMountainPeople #expeditionlife #peru #iloveperu @outfitters_newmarket @lowe.alpine @rab.equipment #alpamayo #ishinca #peru2017 @peruenunatoma @peru
