"If you play for more than you can afford to lose, you learn the game... Victory is sweetest to those who have known defeat" Winston Churchill. New Zealand's mountains may not be amongst the highest, but they are acknowledged as challenging. They demand advanced climbing techniques on ice, snow, and rock, often requiring an approach over rough terrain, and understanding changeable weather. Aoraki/Mt Cook, Tasman and Aspiring are prime summits. See National Park galleries for more images of mountains that attract climbers.
