Mt Rob Roy – Avalanche Glacier

By , November 9, 2014 10:38 pm

 Hey the other day I went for a nice day mish up Rob Roy stream, nice place and not much walking to get to the snow (2hrs).  That place is worth checking, snow from 1200! From the head of Rob Roy stream head up to the saddle between homestead pk and the start of the east ridge of Rob Roy. Then follow a ledge to get to the Avalanche glacier. From the glacier beautiful terrain straight up to the summit of Rob Roy (low pk) via the head of the valley, pick your line. If it gets too warm the first 200 could start to slab away

*The ledge from Homestead saddle  (Ed note – take care on this ledge, sound mountaineering

skills required. Angle is roughly 45 degrees with some potential hazard from above and a whole

bunch of airtime below).
