  South Island Gallery / Climbing / 2015-11 SE ridge of the Warrier  


Climbing the SE ridge of the Warrier, the highest peak in the Armory range (up the Rangitata), with Ben and Jack. Nice line linking a series of couloirs up the ridge, with just enough snow left in November to avoid the choss. We descended the SW face and the Billy McCoy stream--the river crossings/canyoning here was not too hard, but would be hard in higher flows. Likewise the fords on the Clyde. We had 75 cumecs on the Rangitata gauge.
