A TTC trip to Aoraki Mt Cook National Park to climb The Nun's Veil (2749m), January 11-13 2012

We climbed The Nun's Veil by the Gorilla Stream route. The party was David Grainger (leader), Stu Hutson, Piers Harris, Patrick Arnold, Sean Buchanan and Daniel Rogerson. The glacier and snowslopes were in typical Mt Cook summer conditions and weather on the summit day was overcast with occasional showers.
