About This Adventure

When I was 14 and first saw Mount Cook she nade an immediate goal to climb it when she was 18. However this never came true as she was prevented by her brain injury. However after gaining the skills to complete this climb after undergoing rehabilitation, Gavin Lang made a similar goal possible when he guided and supported her to climb Mount Aspiring.

About This Adventure

After climbing Aspiring, I have been pretty keen to climb another mountain.  When Gavin agreed to try Cook, I was pretty excited.  I did pretty minimal training in the 3 weeks leading up to Cook, and nothing in the last week. I didn’t think the climb was going to happen, and if it did I was sure I had enough residual fitness to push through. However  Gavi and I skyped  the Friday night a few days before the climb was proposed and told me that the climb was on for the next week.
