Climbing  Alpine lessons at Arthurs Pass

Going with the flow, or in this case, snow at Arthurs Pass on Mount Temple and Mount Rolleston

It was a happy situation. Winter, a blue bird weather window and my climbing buddy was back in the country. Seemed like the planets had aligned nicely for a climb at Arthurs Pass. Steve Henderson and I decided that Mount Rolleston, via Otira Valley and the slide, would fit the window nicely. We considered the taller Mount Murchison, but that required a much longer inward slog (who said “old farts?!”)
