Legendary Kiwi mountain climber Lydia Bradey swaps notes with fellow climber Ruari MacFarlane in the iconic Plateau Hut, something of a ‘base camp’ for attempts on the summit of Aoraki/Mt Cook. There are dozens of routes up the peak to choose from, all of them challenging, but some more challenging than others.
