Condition Report
Mt Rolleston (2275m) - Otira Face

Issued: 10/02/2020
Central Direct - lower access gully is now cut-off by collapsed ice & slots; use green bluffs or ravine sides to access upper shelf. Upper shelf ice-field is melting out again to rock (scree) and touching ice is all but unnecessary. Face in good condition. Sampson's Couloir is now free of ice/snow. Middle/High bergschrund is open, neve accessible by abseil or go over Middle Peak. (Report provided by Dave Hegan with thanks!)
