Mt Aspiring – 17th Jan 2020

An epic mish with Lachlan.

Leaving after work we made our way to Pearl Flat, where we camped the night.

Next day we ventured to Colin Todd via Bevan Col.

On the third day we made our way up the Kangaroo Patch and climbed the buttress to summit. We descended the same route, all the way to the car (starting at 4.30am and reaching the car at 6ish pm. We were back in Queenstown that night, a very successful trip.

Summit Mt Aspiring, 17th Jan 2020.
Pitching to get around some steep snow slopes. A better option would be to climb the buttress more directly in these conditions.
