Route Climbed: Tower Ridge Date Climbed: 15 Feb 2001
Climbed Tower Ridge in Summer (a very enjoyable scramble) and Winter within 6 months of each other!
Had a fantastic day in Febuary with no wind and blue skies. Got to the Douglas gap to find a party of three messing around so descended to the side and climbed the gully to the right to get to the crest. A lot of soft snow meant that some of the interesting sections were buried. The traverse and tower gap were not as bad as I expected. All in all a fantastic day.

I guess every other way to the top is more fun. Many tourists, "civilized" trails. And as the weather was bad, too, we couldn't even enjoy the view from the top. Anyway, we made it - and had a good beer sitting on the edge of the north face :-)
