Where I'd love to be, on a day like that. Fedder.
Wait, maybe I need some mist on the way up, and on the way down, not enough to dampen the rock, with a nice clear view while I'm on the summit. :D

More or less the conditions Dad and I had on this occasion :) Beautiful memories of a magnificent place.

I think you're on Snowy South. Looking at Nevada, camped at Snowdrift Tarns?

We had a Zodiak, with 2 of us on intense watch for submerged logs and trees! Epic day walk, for various reasons. 18 hours, still missed Pokana. Talk about unfinished business! Next time it'll hopefully include the Spires. :)

Wow, that's a heck of a daywalk!

And yes, I didn't think that one would be too hard. All yours :)

It was indeed. A GPS is great for finding tents in pitch black.

Anybody can go next.

Close enough, Last. It's pretty much where you'd turn off the Ducane Range route if you were going there.
