Otira Slide, Mt Rolleston, Arthur's Pass National Park

On the "Otira Slide" at the head of the Otira valley. Very accessible and very avalanche prone! Two small dots below the climbers (to the left of the little pyramid in the centre) give some scale - these are another party ascending the slide. The Otira slide is the standard descent route from the Low Peak. In Summer it is a remnant of permanent snow.
