Thrills and Chills

Hukawai Glacier Centre, Franz Josef. Feb 2009. Ajr
There’s a thrill a minute in this country and one of the newest is the 10-metre high, ice-climbing chamber at Hukawai Glacier Centre at Franz Josef in South Westland. It’s the only one in the Southern Hemisphere apparently – not that that will tempt ME into polishing up my ice pick any time soon! But I did like the idea of looking into the fully glazed ice chamber and being able to take photographs. Shame about the lack of ice climbers. Perhaps another time!
