Cool action shot! Must have felt great to summit so early. What time did you start?

Re: Nice!

Thanks for the comments. We started from a camp at Marcel Col, at the start of the steeper climbing. We left the tent at around 3AM. I expected that it would take a bit longer, but conditions were fantastic and we only needed 4 pitches of belayed climbing. Conditions were really interesting this year due to the lack of snow last winter. The route on Tasman was actually easier than the Linda Glacier on Cook, which is not typically the case.
