Gary and John have finished off a project they started in March. In March they started their preparation for an attempt on Mt Aspiring with some local rock climbing and a traverse of the Remarkables in Queenstown. So on Friday they flew into to Bevan Col with Aspiring helicopters and traveled in “glacier mode” across to Colin Todd Hut ( 1800m). Next morning after a 3.30am wake up they climbed the ‘kangaroo patch’ and buttress route to the summit ( 3033m). Yeehaa. Well done John!
