2:10 The Mt Tutoko Climb - Guy McKinnon
Imagine spending an evening up the top of a remote mountain in Fiordland overlooking the Tasman sea that's shimmering like a plate of silver, and having the deep green bush below you, enjoying a view not many have enjoyed before. Canterbury based climber Guy McKinnon did just that when he reached the top of Mt Tutoko, Fiordland's highest peak, a couple of weeks ago. He is the first solo climber to climb up the west face of the mountain and he celebrated his feat by camping out the night 100 metres from the summit.
