I heard news today from NZ that a good friend of mine died yesterday while guiding on Mt Cook, when his ice tools blew/and or ice collapsed around him and he fell in the summit rocks on Mt Cook.

Rest in peace Anton.

Sad news John. My condolences.

It sounds like he was very careful and well respected.

Thanks for the info. I'm sad to hear it, I knew Anton from MtCook days. He was a great guy.
