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.…

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