Firm crusty snow and dry rock!

The thaw continues with the snow much depleted from yesterday. Today the rock was quite dry and some buttresses were being climbed in big boots. 
Despite this the snow was still firm and icy in the easy gully lines and the Goat Track path required crampons. 
There were quite number of folk climbing the main gully lines, some of which are now starting to breakup and all, require extreme care due to loose rock and sagging cornices. 
A lot of the ice has fallen down though there were queues at the foot of the Mirror Direct icefall!
