  South Island Gallery / Climbing / 2015-04 Twin Stream  


Five days at Twin stream with Jess and Thor. Some of the best climbing I've done in NZ!

Mostly semi-bolted slabs. 2 x 50m ropes worked well. Scariest moment was when a kea attacked my belayer! No snow left in March, and didn't see any rockfall all week.

The kea spent the nights screaming and trying to shred our tents. We took everything down and buried it under rocks during the day. Next time I'll be under the bivi rock 200m up the hill---dry and big enough for about 3 people.
