Thanks solonomad - I was so excited to finally see the peak after a cloudy afternoon that I couldn't put the camera down ... I shot the whole range, from cloudy to sunny to cloudy again. :)
Cheers,

Thanks Marlon - I've added it to the album. The tent is actually another climbers - but we used a North Face Mountain 25 and it worked out fine for the conditions (and I was happy to have the donkeys carry it!)
