DESCRIPTION: The track climbs over an old moraine, then follows the contour through subalpine scrub and tussock to the Otira River footbridge.

An unmarked route then continues from the footbridge and climbs rock scree and boulders to the head of the valley. In Winter / Early Summer beware of avalanches onto the route above the foot-bridge.

Snow at the base of Mt Rolleston can be reached nearly all year round, with due care.
