I'll admit that I was really nervous prior to this trip and was having second thoughts but we'd already paid so I had to get on with it!
You get all the gear so you just need to turn up. The helicopter trip to the top was great, we got to sit in the front on the way up :-)
At the top we were met by our guide Brett. What a great chap he is. We got our cramp-on's on and off we went, following Brett along the ice. We got to climb up some ice holes, in fact we also got to go down one, unfortunately I got a bit stuck in the puddle at the bottom but Brett was on hand to pull me out!
It was a really great experience and we were so lucky with the weather as it was bright sunshine when we were up there, in fact the cloud started to come in just as we were finishing up.
I was a bit unsteady at times on the ice and Brett could sense this and made me walk behind him so that I could walk in his footsteps. This made it much easier for me so he was doing a great job.
In summary, it is expensive but it is an opportunity you probably won't have again so I would 100% recommend it.
