Route Climbed: Southeast Route Date Climbed: November 13, 2005
Sent the wife and kids on a day cruise in Cooks Bay. Climbed the peak, but just missed the summit (but I'll sign the log anyway since I maintain the page). The final roped pitches were simply too dangerous and I didn't think I could make it back down alive if I tried the final pitches. This peak is scary and extremely dangerous when the weather is wet. I felt lucky to make it down alive and this was one of the scariest climbs I have ever made. Make sure to try this one in the dry season. I also walked all the way back to the wharf and over the Vaiare-Paopao route to Cooks Bay. Long day.
