Bealey River is a steep alpine descent. Anchors are mostly bolted; however, be prepared to replace anchors. The rock is fractured and loose in all parts as the area is subject to multiple large avalanches in winter off the side of Mt Rolleston. Leave any descent later in the season to let the avalanche debris melt, and in some years, the snow doesn’t melt.
WARNING: It’s an avalanche chute in winter. It has loose rocks and sharp edges. NOT RECOMMENDED.
First descent by Grant Prattley, James Abbot, Nola Colie and Victor Mendes, Jan 2019.
