After flying back south on the 26th of December I jumped straight in my car and headed for the hills, meeting up with Helen Liley, Lynn Kilpatrick and Sylvie Admore on the way! What was supposed an epic 4-5 day adventure up on to the Bracken Snowfield, with possible side trip up Mt Whitcombe, and definite ascents of The Amazons Breast. Ended up being thwarted spectacularly by the weather and nearly resulted in a yard-sale on the Sale Glacier (and yes I have been waiting since we were on that glacier to make that terrible pun)!
So we after destruction of the more expensive tent on the trip we pulled off an early morning hasty retreat back to the valley and headed off to celebrate the new (and hopefully better, weather wise) year elsewhere.
