Summit club

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:17 pm on 8 December 2010

Most of us would consider it a huge achievement to climb Mt Taranaki just once. Danny Roguski from Opunake wants to reach the top of the 2518-metre-high mountain 100 times in one year. He started the challenge on January first and has reached the summit 97 times. Once he hits the 100 mark, he'll join an exclusive group called the Mt Taranaki Summit Club. No one has achieved 100 summits for more than 20 years
