Mt Rolleston (2275m) - Otira Face
|The couloir heading up to the snow field below Central Direct was still accessible but starting to melt away at the top now and pull away from the rock so may not be doable in the near future if things keep warming up.
The lower part of Central Direct was a bit wet and slippery in parts, some water streaming down here and there, and especially slippery on the rock with that black moss on it, but once you got above that it was all good. Y needed to be very careful on the lower part of the buttress and choose your route carefully. (Report provided by Dave Hegan with thanks!)|
