Unapologetically reviving an old thread :-)

I've recently relocated to Melbourne and keen to hear of any Victorian Mountaineers, experienced or aspiring...

If you're in Melbourne and keen to get out more, let me know!

Planning a new trip to Australia & New Zealand, but with an nonclimbing friend and rather far away in time still. The last four years the trips have gone to California mainly, but now it's time to get back down under again. Really looking forward to it. Do you hear me, dadndave?

Do you suppose your non-climbing friend would mind waiting at the hut?

It'd be nice to get on top after two failed attempts.

Yeah I was there a couple of weeks ago on a family holiday – had a good mind to tell the missus to sit tight and look after the baby while I’d be away for a day and a half to climb the thing again!!

Image

I did get the chance to do a couple of half day solo climbs though. Climbed up to Mt Rolleston (low peak) in Arthurs Pass NP via Rome Ridge (highly recommended) including a traverse to Avalanche Peak. I also botched an attempt at the non-existent route up to the SE ridge of Homestead peak (Aspiring NP), followed by a run around the mountain and back up the other side via Rob Roy Stream to the snowfields to the NW ridge – I didn’t quite make it to the summit thanks to blowing out a proportion of my allotted time clambering around the base of the SE ridge on a 60 degree slope playing fisty-cuffs with the ‘beloved’ (horrendous) NZ fern………

Aussie's should get after NZ. Just found this nice montage. Interesting for spotting places you've been.
