Bettison Stream

Bettison Stream

Campsite in the upper Bettison 1969 /70. Very little in the way of maps or information then. Came over the Stewart Saddle from the Godley and down the icefall at the head of the basin. Our route was down the left of the ice fall, across the band of snow about half way down and then down the snow shute on the left hand side of the pic. The gear we used was fairly old fashioned. look at what is holding the tent up. Also used forged steel crampons and manilla waist ropes (no Harnesses). There was no track out of the Bettison at that time so it was a solid day of bush bashing to get down to Scone Creek Hut which had just been built
