20150102 - Climbing Avalanche Peak (Arthur's Pass, New Zealand)

Friday 2nd January was spent doing an arduous 7.5hr climb up Avalanche Peak near Arthur’s Pass in New Zealand. Do not underestimate this climb if you try to do it – the ugide time is 6-8 hours for a reason! Expect blisters, sunburn, climbing up near-vertical sections of rock with your hands, and scrambling over wobbly boulders. In hindsight it was all totally worth it, but at the time, it was a very difficult and painful experience!
