Nearing the ridge line, we weren’t sure what we would find. The original route didn’t have anywhere near enough ice to climb, so this route became our backup option. I took a lot away from this day out, mainly that I want to do more trips where we don’t know what exactly we’re getting into, not knowing the route and what we would find became the test that I was looking for.

I used to take loads of photos of the night sky, but I haven’t been doing that as much anymore. I’m not sure why exactly, things change, our interests and priorities change, where we focus our energy changes. It’s all good, and having the time to reflect on those changes has been a welcome start to the year.
