Another first descent for Tom Grant, Ben Briggs and Enrico Mosetti

First descent of Malte Brun via the Zig Zag route on it’s south face.

02 November 2017
After the first descent of Caroline Face, Tom Grant, Ben Briggs and Enrico Mosetti continue to descent hard lines in New Zealand.

This time the Anglo-Italian team have done the descent of the south wall of Malte Brun (3199 m) from the "Zig-Zag" route. Also this time it's a  first, absolutely technical, descent, perhaps the most technical of New Zealand, according to them. They managed to skip it all, with only 20 feet of double fall in 600 of the wall.
