Great day trip out up Mt Rolleston, headed up Rome Ridge and back down the Otira slide (as got a little too close to an avalanche!). No rope, but even managed to sneak quickly up some ice to the high peak.
Set out with Jaz Morris, Tom McKellar and Quinn Hornblow. Tanja de Wilde, James Waetford and Alexis Belton let us plug the steps and caught up near the gap. Met lots of other up there also!
