We turned back at the last gendarme.
I suggest bivvying at the base of this route - it was too long a day approaching from French Ridge hut.
Good, enjoyable climbing.
A very sexy mountain!
Well worth the investment of the guide service! See my photos and my trip report for details.
Climbed with Anna from Aspiring Guides - wonderful trip start to finish. Very icy on the ramp, and a long way out through the Matukituki valley.
