Artist's Description

Set within Otago’s Mount Aspiring National Park, it has a height of 3,033 metres. Māori named it Tititea, which translates as Glistening Peak. Named in December 1857 by the Chief Surveyor for the Otago Province, John Turnbull Thomson. It is also often called ‘the Matterhorn of the South,’ for its pyramidal peak when seen from the Dart River. The first ascent was on 23 November 1909 by Major Bernard Head and guides Jack Clarke and Alec Graham. Head’s party climbed to the summit ridge by the west face from the Bonar Glacier, a route not repeated until 1965.

Mt Aspiring sits slightly to the west of the main divide, 30 kilometres west of Lake Wanaka.
