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!
