Family  A day early

A mix of type one and two winter climbing fun for two teenagers on Mount Taranaki.

They’d been to the summit of Mount Taranaki once before, back in January 2010 when Ed was nine and Will seven. But that had been in summer conditions via Fanthams Peak. With the July school holidays upon us I figured some time in crampons would be much more valuable than yet more screen time.
