5th-6th of October 2019. After a few months of pretending to study and the two days of sitting surgical exams in Wellington (and wondering of course why I was sitting such exams in the first place at all!) It was good to blow off some steam with the first mountain trip in a while and in the excellent company of Rose Pearson, Andy Howell, Helen Liley, David Ayre and Hanno Snyman. Although man was I tired!
Also special thanks to Tara King and Lauren Beech for helping me study for and survive the exam!

Tried to get a decent photo of David and Helen... this was the best I came up with.

Final slope to the ridge, cheers to Rose and Andy for machining up this and putting the ladder in!
