    Do you mean you have no mountaineering experience or the person you are seeking needs no mountaineering experience ?
    Have you tried the NZ mountaineering clubs?

    I believe Aspiring is a mountain you can climb with little experience, but to do it without a fully trained companion would be crazy. The problem is, as with all mountains, the weather can deal you a cruel blow with no warning and that is when you need the knowledge of someone trained.
    This mountain has been conquered by many and many have failed.
    Let me get back to you with more details on the clubs.

    WEll anyway, welcome to VT Paul, I was at Aspiring last summer although I didn't climb the mountain. I was at the hut where the climbers set out from. The day after I was there, the weather turned an went really ugly, i was further down the valley by then, but we nearly got stranded by the swollen river. It all goes bad so quickly.
    See if this url will work for you, it has contact details:
