Alpine climbing instruction course

IFMGA Mountain Guide Gary is just back from the Mt Cook, Tasman Saddle area having just completed a 7 day Alpine Guides private instruction course for two clients who wanted to learn/hone their skills for further alpine climbing in the NZ southern alps.  The weather was pretty windy, making for spectacular weather clouds( which were fantastic examples to see and learn from) and the neve is well filled in making for easy glacier travel/access/egress for upcoming mountaineering trips.
