Winter trip no. 3

I’ve been away for the last two weeks on trips with Tim Jackson the first week and Tim Fox the second. Not much writing but a run down of Tim Jackson’s trip in photos…

We had a lovely evening ski tour after setting up camp on day 1.

Day 2 was spent hiding from the weather in our tent but day 3 was beautiful and we climbed a great gully nearby. We chose to carry our skis up the route so that we could make a quick descent back to the tent.

Day 4 wasn’t the nicest but we got out for a couple of short climbs. First we did the trident ice-fall before climbing a short mixed route and finishing just as some very thick cloud settled in, making our short skidoo drive back to the tent quite exciting.

On the 5th day of the trip we went for another short ski tour before a spot of crevasse exploration.

The weather forecast was looking bad for the remainder of the week so we made our way back to a hut that we have closer to base on Friday morning and did a good climb on North Stork to round off the week.
