Radio New Zealand is currently running a series covering Simon Morton’s attempt to climb Mt Aspiring (Tititea). We are following it with interest as my son accompanied the team as a second guide. He works as a professional guide for the internationally respected guiding company Adventure Consultants. At the time he had a client cancel and this was a good chance to keep up his fitness (!). You can listen to the first episode here (do a search on the Radio NZ site for ‘Aspiring’ and you’ll find the remainder).
