Condition Report
Mt Murchison (2408m)

Issued: 18/11/2017
White Glacier has no open features. Surface snow on White was soft (at all hours) and required sustained step-plugging to Kahutea Col. The final ascent from the col to the summit had far too much unstable snow in the couloirs and gullies - human triggered sluff avalanches were initiated; the currently exposed rock approach was unsuitable to attempt.
