Two lose lives on Remarkables

Aspiring Guides is deeply saddened to confirm that two of their clients have died following a
climbing accident on a guided trip on The Remarkables mountain range near Queenstown.
The incident occurred on the Grand Traverse, a well-known route on The Remarkables, at
approximately 11:45am on Thursday.

Aspiring Guides company director Vickie Sullivan says that the team was devastated and
extended their deepest sympathies to the families of those who lost their lives.
“Our immediate concern is for the families who have lost their loved ones and to support them
in any way we can.
“We are also working closely with the NZ Police and the NZ Mountain Guides Association to
aid their investigation around the circumstances of the incident and are conducting our own
internal review.”
Vickie says the Aspiring Guides team and wider climbing community is close-knit
and has been deeply shocked by the tragedy.
“We are providing support and assistance to our team but have also been overwhelmed at the
response from our small New Zealand mountain and guiding community who have been in touch to
pass on their condolences to those most affected and offer assistance where they can.
“I would also like to thank the Emergency Services and the Wanaka and Wakatipu Alpine Cliff
Rescue team for their quick response and assistance.”
