Taranaki - late October
« on: November 08, 2009, 04:21:16 PM »
Went up by the south face.  Crampons and axe needed from about 2000m (ie once higher than Fantham's peak).  We had glorious weather.  Snow conditions were ok - a bit of loose stuff sitting on the hard compacted snow and ice.  Definitely a climb rather than a tramp at this time of year.

Photos below are all taken by Vincent - some amazing visuals.
