Mountain Conditions
General Conditions (Updated 1342hrs Tue 22nd May, 2018):
Sorry expect very few updates here as I'm off climbing in South America for 3 months. My friends in AP will try and keep the automated parts of the website alive.
  • Note: avalanche.net.nz updates no longer work automatically as they have changed their website (visit HERE for their new site). I will atempt to update them manually from time to time as I return to internet connectivity.

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.

Cheers - Graeme -
