We are two french alpinist and we make a world tour from January 10 to August. We'll be in NZ from 10 January to 01 March and we want to climb summits like Mont Cook, Aspiring and Darren according to the conditions.

Our expedion project is based on meeting local mountaineers, in order to publish portraits of them and to write down their stories on a particular mountain. We want finally to publish a fresco of reports on the people who are practicing mountaineering around the world. You can get more information on our site : La Voix des Cimes http://lavoixdescimes.wixsite.com/lavoixdescimes

We're searching for locals mountainers who have some stories to tell about one of their remarkable experience in mountains. After listening to them, we'll go climb the summit/route they talked about and we'll write a report on our ascent with a portrait of the storyteller.

Don't hesitate to contact me for further infomations!
