Condition Report - Avalanche Peak (1833m) - Scott's track

Issued: 24/07/2021
Snowline is around 1400m. Crampons useful from 1500m. At 1600m started punching through to around knee height but some firmer stuff. Turned around at 1800m facing either tricky snow traverse in waist deep powder slope or scrambling over rockier side with high exposure. (Report provided by Brodie DK with thanks!)
