|Dave Elphick traversing Evans to Red Lion
And so on up the Rakaia to Erewhon Col. Here we had our sights on one of the remaining prizes of the Southern Alps, the unclimbed NE ridge of Mt Evans. This climb was magnificent, embracing all the things climbers dream about, pristine morning weather, climbing virgin territory, Spectre of the Brocken in mist high on our ridge, sunset descent and moonlight return to our snow cave abode. Very satisfying - maybe the next post.
We did some more climbing on Red Lion Peak and Mt Whitcombe before returning to civilisation and compulsory military training - if that is not some sort of oxymoron! And also to start university!
