52 Peaks Challenge 2021 – New Zealand version

In 2021, I’m doing the 52 Peaks Challenge. Even though it’s got the word “challenge” in its name, it’s simply a fun way to motivate myself to venture to new areas and peaks (and not just hang out in the valleys!).

The criteria for my NZ version of the challenge have been inspired by Ben Gibbins who defined them as follows: each peak has to be named on a New Zealand topographic map, over 1000m in altitude and every single one has to be different.
