For anyone wanting to see a climb/traverse/hunt of a remote and rarely climbed NZ mountain - Mt Burns at the head of the Mueller Glacier - then all the way down the Landsborough River, be sure to be watching TVNZ's Duke channel, 8.30pm January 31st, this Wednesday night. Freeview 13 / Sky 23. This is part 1 of our Landsborough Summit to Sea trip, starting at Mt Cook Village and ending up at the Tasman Sea.
Not the normal way to go and hunt in the landsborough.
These guys arnt all about shooting animals, getting there, and out, is essential to the hunting experience.
quite a few quad bike and heli fly in "hunters" could learn something from it.
Interesting to see the Barron Saddle route they varied upon is now the recommended route over into the Landsboro from Mt Cook. I'd always understood the older Fyfe Pass route to be reasonably straight forward but maybe not.
Did the Fyffe Pass route in winter during the late 70's. Everything was frozen up when we did it and the avo risk was probably minimal, but from dim memory it was way easier than some of the shots in this video traversing Scissors.
