Police have released the names of the climbers who died in Fiordland National Park last week.
They were Mark Herzog (27) of America and Peter Adler (25), of Dunedin.
Search teams and police recovered the bodies of the two climbers on January 31.
Detective Sergeant Dave Kennelly said they were found in the area of Mt Sabre in the Darran Mountains.
Police were alerted to the missing climbers on January 30 but were unable to fly into the area at the time due to deteriorating weather.
A helicopter and search teams were able to get to the area early the following morning and the climbers were located about 8am.
A team spent the day recovering the bodies and completing a scene examination to establish the cause of the deaths.
The deaths have been referred to the Coroner.
