Condition Report
Mt Rolleston (2275m) - High Peak Access

Issued: 15/05/2017
Bergschrunds approaching Middle - High Col are all navigable with care. Final bergschrund has been back-filled at its eastern end with seemingly stable snow (bridged). A 4m down-climb is required from glacier to access, then a steep climb of 6m to the col. On descent the southern abseil sling drops onto the snow-bridge. Mixed conditions above col (good cramponing where necessary, but otherwise a scratch-fest), with shallow hard packed snow on south side particularly around the gendarmes, and shallow wet loose snow on radiated north side.
