Warmer and stormy today
In contrast to Tuesday today was a lot warmer and very windy. Although the milder weather will strip the crags of rime and moisten the snow pack. The deeper areas of snow in the gullies and ledges should survive until the snow refreezes to give good neve for climbing on. An email from Karl A and a few photos from yesterday. "I saw Al and he said he'd met you and Fi on the walk in. We did Wavelength III,4 which was a nice climb with some nice big belay ledges so nice and relaxing. The turf was frozen and we were the only party on the route unlike Fingers Ridge. We saw three parties strung out along when we were walking off!" See also AH's blog.
