And top of the morning to you


Dave Bolger of Climbing Queenstown and a thrill-seeking Aussie client give the world a wave from 2km above Lake Wakatipu.

The snap of the awesome winter wonderland was taken by fellow mountain guide Chris Prudden on the Remarkables ridge north of Double Cone last Sunday.

“It’s an interesting traverse at the moment with unconsolidated snow covering the rock arête,” Prudden says.

“Care needs to be taken with the snow stability, with the current avalanche hazard considerable.”
