A wonderful weekend had.

I had never done anything like this before. The snow was crunchy and the arete was very exciting and humbling!

The route took us a very long time due to a very slow ascent and then my own slow descent as the pain in the knees kicked in.

We couldnt have asked for a better day. The sun was splitting the skies.
