Ascent Trip ReportMountaineers group of 12.
Blue Glacier route was straight forward to the False Summit with few open crevasses. By the time we reached the False Summit, we encountered strong winds and intensifying rain. Not good conditions for tackling the rock scramble on the summit block of the West Peak, so we decided to turn around. Three days in more or less non-stop rain handled in high spirits by a strong group.
