Climbs in the Aspiring region of the Southern Alps of New Zealand. Powell did many firsts in the Aspiring area notably the first traverse of Aspiring via Ruth Ridge, the Volta and Therma glaciers (culminating in his first climb of Mount Aspiring), the first ascents of Homestead Peak (1952) and Craigroyston (1953), followed by the first ascent of Rob Roy s north ridge in 1954. He also named a few of the peaks of the area, such as Dragonfly Peak. The stories of these triumphs are absorbing and are both expansive in describing the country much of it untrodden and unmapped at the time, but also personal, detailing the actions and emotions of his climbing companions. Perhaps the best is his account of the epic snow cave on Bevan Col in 1951, when twelve people spent 3 days in a snow cave designed for two people after an accident on Mt Bevan.
