A first walk in a while for me. Easy going at the start but hard packed snow further up especially on north facing sides. The weather was fine but the wind was a pain. I fell a good 25 or 30 metres down a hard packed snow slope and was very luck not to damage myself more than I did. The crampons went on after this. I finished the full walk but my knee is twice the size at the moment.
