Forecast is for easing rain. Yeah Right!
Although the rain is only at 45 degree angle at the moment so that is an improvement from horizontal.

Matt and Mike made it to Otirrehua against the odds. Miserable and cold over the little saddle, a touch of snow strong winds, had to walk the entire clime to 1400m :( so cold couldn't open food and didn't want to stop anyways. Tough morning!
