Local Heroes is a 5 to 6 day guiding package, with several mountain objectives, for 1 or 2  participants per guide. A range of technical difficulties provide challenge for beginner through to intermediate level mountaineers.

The Local Heroes program will start in Mount Cook Village. Once you meet your guide and discuss objectives, equipment and rental gear will be organised.

You must be prepared to head out to your first climbing venue that same day, if conditions allow. Most climbs listed involve a 5 or 10 minute drive to the start of the route.

For climbs that require a bivouac Alpine Guides will supply a tent or bivvy bag, as well as all bivvy equipment (stoves, utensils, etc.). Bringing your own drinking mug is recommended.

The South Temple or Hopkins Valleys (1.5 hours drive) - offering a number of great alternative climbs.
