Mountain Conditions
General Conditions (Updated 0942hrs Wed 15th March, 2017): Climbing conditions had been generally OK, ridge routes about the Main Range are mostly clear to rock and climbers should be aware of substantial loose rock being exposed. Steep face ice/snow is now out of condition with melt water running behind unbonding it!

Access is still OK/marginal on glaciers though bergschrunds and crevasse fields are becoming more prominent rapidly - rope up as recent fresh snow has bridged some features!
