Mountains are always a tad unpredictable - but predictable in the very unpredictable nature.
 
This large rock avalanche fell from the crux step on Silberhorn and onto the Grand Plateau of Aoraki Mt Cook at Approx 1pm on 31st Dec 2020. Had anybody been walking back from a Aoraki Ascent there would have been no way to avoid it. Thankfully nobody was injured and the debris field did not reach Plateau Hut. In this image you can see Mt Vancouver in tge upper Linda Glacier also showing signs of rock instability. As our climate warms and we lose more ice our mtns become more unstable 

Take care in 2021 and beyond. Climb safe - come home

Looking at the West face of Glacier Peak.  The mountain has been down wasting quite a lot however early season conditions are still allowing access through the lower shrund.  This access on climbers left may well collapse in the coming weeks as higher temperatures and rainfall open / collapse the Bergshrunds

As a fairly straightforward climb you can easily expect to do this route in approx 6-7 hours from pioneer hut ( condition dependant )

Small lines in big terrain. Great day out on the Tasman Glacier today. Always a priviledge to be able to work in such an amazing place
