The full video of the Mount Dixon rock avalanche from Aoraki / Mount Cook National Park in New Zealand

Posted by Dave Petley

A couple of weeks ago I featured the news coverage that included the video of the spectacular rock avalanche from the flanks of Mount Dixon in Aoraki / Mount Cook National Park in New Zealand.  That video was shot by a climber, Neil Wiltshire.  Over the weekend Neil very kindly dropped me a line about the event, and he has now posted the full video on Youtube.  So here it is in its full glory.  I’ll post again later in the week with a full analysis, but in the meantime enjoy – it is truly astounding!
