after freezing in the shade on the 3 graces we spent the remainder of our day chasing the sun around the garden, starting with the easy tourist gully. straightforward, enjoyable scrambling brought us to a lovely notch and a ledge bringing us to the summit. fun jaunt!
This turned out to be a fine consolation prize to the highest tower in the Garden via the Tourist Gully, which is nothing more than a scramble with a few low 5th class bouldering moves. Can be done w/o rope, but bring gear so you don't get busted!
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
