Ascent Trip ReportSunday 3pm
Parked up and walked through tunnel and headed up the path. Not too much snow at first but some ice on shaded patches of path. Later snow so donned crampons which made the going faster.
Snow getting deeper and fenceposting to top of thigh. On one occasion I pushed up with other foot which somehow expressed at an angle through soft snow and straight into my thigh. A few crampon marks and one nasty deep cut the results. Tom bandaged up and we continued up to the refuge.2hrs 30mins car to refuge.
A mild night for Feb at 2 degrees Celcius. Headed up in light snow. Straight forward ascent, bagged the summit (2hrs 30 refuge to summit), completed the loop by coming down via the lakes inc. some glissading, picked the other rucksack up at the refuge and headed down to the car.
