Alpine guide praises Mt Aspiring rescuers

From Morning Report, 8:09 am on 3 August 2018

In an astonishing feat, an Australian climber has survived nearly a week alone on Mt Aspiring, enduring freezing conditions, with 50-60km/hour winds and at times heavy snow. He had been on the mountain for nearly seven days before he was found on Thursday. Whitney Thurlow is professional guide and former owner of Aspiring Guides. He talks to Susie Ferguson.
