Everything a mountaineer could wish for in the area is encompassed by this mountaineering guide. It covers known alpine climbing routes up to June 2001 and provides a short description of access and a difficulty grading. The Aoraki Mount Cook district is the centre of New Zealand mountaineering containing the country's highest peaks and largest glaciers. There are soaring 2000 metre ice faces, beautiful snow aretes, superb rock buttresses and singular mountain beauty. [Simon Middlemass]
