Ascent Trip Report

Snow-free, solid dry rock, good approach trail. Instead of passing Foggy lake, go on the ridge above - good trail with views. In ascent gully don't follow the footpath - it ends up in a ~15m 5th class step, instead go left - 3rd class with moderate exposure. 20km return trip. Good swim in the tarn just above Foggy Lake.

On a side note, the trailhead parking area is prone to vandalism, with plenty of evidence of broken car windows glass and bullet holes in the signage.
