AI4- Natural Selection, Mt Darwin's Toe Alpine 500m Mount Cook Area Chris August Elliott
Tue 19th Aug '14

Classic. If only for the controversy it raised when locals kicked up a stink about what aspect of Darwin it really was on in our reporting. South Face? West Ridge? South Shoulder? Let's call it Darwin's Toe. Nice ice climbing. 44 hour round trip up the glacier, up the plod, up the ice, down and out.

Amazing grovel. Is there anything more badass than offwidth thrutching with one arm and whacking frozen grass with an ice axe in the other?

Flat crux hold required some gnarly effort to stay with it. Cut loose, toes barely off the ground. Skim skim skim. Send!

Can do it clean in two halves. The crux hold in the middle is a difficult flat jug. Super sketchy to hook.

Mantle the no. 15 on map 11. Pretty good!

V0 NO.69 Very Good Boulder Castle Hill Basin Justin Case

To the right and back of the letter box boulder, huge slopey pockety slab.

On the left side of the letter box boulder, easy slab :P

V3 NO.63 Very Good Boulder Castle Hill Basin Justin Case

Talking about no. 51 on map 11. Chossy and scary, probably the least good boulder we tried :S

Changed beta from going to the far left hand pocs to the one just above, made it lots easier! First Castle Hill V5! :D :D :D

Talking about no 39 on map 17, HUGE right hand move to fragile mantle. Pretty classic, happy to get my first two Castle Hill V5's in one day!

Not actually a log for Pepsin. Talking about no 54 in map 11. Sharp! :S

V3 No.45 Classic Boulder Castle Hill Basin Justin Case
Wed 6th Aug '14

OK, talking about the one tucked between two boulders (can't remember what map on which number), you jump to the starting slopers, smear up and then big moves between big holds. Pretty awesome!

M3 Number One Gully Ice 150m Queenstown Chris August Elliott
Tue 12th Aug '14

After a massive snow dump probably M3- in these conditions. I forgot to bring the rack so I led the entire thing with 2 microcams, a snowstake and a knifeblade piton (including for anchor pieces)... needless to say, knotted slings make bomber anchors.

I´m talking about the one to the right of The Element V5, one throw to big slopey pocket+mantle. Last problem of the day!

Felt like a soft V3 until I got to the mantle :P

First properly awkward Castle Hill mantle. My right gluteal kinda hurt afterwards from so much pressing down with the heel!

V4 ** Connect 4 (No. 40) Mega Classic Boulder Castle Hill Basin Justin Case
Mon 4th Aug '14

My best flash and beautiful ascent on cool pockets! Did the sit start. Techy mantle at the end, perfect setting with Nick and Maria!

V1 NO.54 Very Good Boulder Castle Hill Basin Justin Case
Mon 4th Aug '14

I´m talking about the one with the big pocket where you smear to turn your hands round to mantle, pretty good!

V3 Bong-eye Mega Classic Boulder Castle Hill Basin Justin Case
Mon 4th Aug '14

I´m talking about the one that looks like Atari where you slap on either side up, the stand start (sit start´s V6). Took my first biggish fall bouldering here! Pretty fun V3!

V1 * No.40 Mega Classic Boulder Castle Hill Basin Justin Case
Mon 4th Aug '14

First climb of our mega trip! Also my first boulder in NZ and Castle Hill. Wet pockets, slick limestone, but pretty solid and fun! Like the style. Even though it´s winter, I was on my t-shirt all day because of the sun, very agreeable. Dunno if this is the right entry, I mean it to be the pockety V2 in the submarine boulder...

V2 * No.39 Mega Classic Boulder Castle Hill Basin Justin Case
Mon 4th Aug '14

Again, wet pockets, sketchier mantle! This is on the submarine boulder, dunno if this is the right entry...

Really good. The technical crux is also the section with the poorest protect. Thin, fiddly small wires. A good English-style headpoint

Super windy. Beginners leading this might benefit from a cam or two to protect a ground-fall runout

Followed Sleake up this thing. First real mixed route. Such a sick day out! The squeeze chimney, capping the finish, was awesome. Cant wait to get back on some more mixed stuff there.
