CURRENT ALERT
Thieves breaking into vehicles
Thieves have been breaking into cars and motor-homes at various car-parks and some camp-sites along highway 73 on a regular basis (day & night). They have been stealing passports, credit cards, money, electronic devices and recreation equipment. Take your absolute valuables with you on the walks, and don't leave other valuable items in plain sight in your vehicle. Report any suspicious activity to Police '111', and note down registration plates of vehicles!

Mountain Conditions
General Conditions (Updated 0718hrs Mon 18th March, 2019):

Starting to cool off with summer seemingly gone. Glaciers have shrank dramatically this summer season, with some ice-fields all but disappearing and exposing considerable loose rock.

I have been completely rewriting the "Arthur's Pass Climbing Guide", this is a huge project; most of the beta in it comes from the 1990's when I was young, stupid, had little fear (and many less climbing injuries), and we had not been rattled severely by so many route damaging earthquakes; it definitely needs updating and correction. To assist with this I have placed the entire updated guide online HERE, feel free to comment on routes, or provide climbing topos, as I've run out of time to complete these at present.
