At the foot of the Cook massif there is a big stone cube carrying dozens of brass-plates with the names of climbers that have fallen to their death on the treacherous slopes and glaciers of this high mountain peak.

You’d better stay down and look up in awe at Cook from below, while contemplating the tragic fate of its victims.
