Condition Report - Mt Rolleston (2275m) - Otira Slide

Issued: 12/11/2023
Snow has receded to the top of the Otira Valley, making for a quick walk up through the Moraine. Otira Slide has a decent amount of snow left on it but is a bit scratchy in places, namely at the top of the couloir on the final ascent section. Snow was perfect today where present, polystyrene quality making for great cramponing and quick ascent to Low and then High Peak. (Report provided by Robert Gallagher with thanks!)
