Summit: 3033m (10,827ft)
Aspiring Guides has more experience climbing Mount Aspiring than any other mountain guide company in the world. Whichever route you do, this is a beautiful mountain and is a highlight of many people's climbing trip in New Zealand.
Mount Aspiring is a classic horned peak often called the "Matterhorn of the South". Its beauty and technical climbing make it one of New Zealand's premier mountain peaks. Climbing Mount Aspiring is a significant undertaking and not to be underestimated. In the interest of safety and quality we only guide Mount Aspiring as an ascent with one client and one mountain guide unless as part of a longer mountaineering instruction course.
After the climb the walk from Colin Todd Hut out to the road end is a very big, semi-technical descent (1400m) that many people find as challenging as the climb itself.
