SUMMITS AND SHADOWS: JACK CLARKE AND NEW ZEALAND MOUNTAINEERING, Graham Langton

Mountaineering in New Zealand has a long and proud history of discovery, endeavour and success. One of its most significant pioneers was Jack Clarke, who from 1893 to 1914 climbed, guided, explored and organised trips into the mountains. Just a youngster when he made the first ascent of New Zealand's greatest peak, Aoraki Mt Cook, Clarke's activity encompassed the full breadth of mountaineering. This humble, quietly spoken man was one of our foremost alpine guides before the First World War, and as the first Chief Guide at the Hermitage he set the pattern of guiding for many years to come. As a climber he made many first ascents, and while working on the Geological Survey and leading other expeditions he also explored uncharted valleys and ranges throughout the South Island. This mountain man played a major part in the development of New Zealanders' knowledge of their own country, and of mountaineering as a magnificent pursuit.
