View from the ridge. On the left is the summit. I digitally removed the tower in this photo.

An easy scramble as far as we got. We turned back after encountering snow 250 m (horizontal) from the summit.

Our ascent route followed the ridge from the left. Note the lower south peak
that must be climbed first.

Along the way clearings like this gave us a break from bushwhacking.

Interesting trees along the way

Going up the south peak. Behind it is a false summit.

Looking back at the south peak

The col between the south and north peaks

Dinah hides in some snow-covered trees.

Final 250 horizontal metres to the summit. We turned back here.
