    Awesome yeah can watch it again .
    Its such a mission I dont know if I will ever get to do it.
    Choosing spring snow would be good for the way down but harder to climb out.
    Might have to be content with McKay when the road opens.

    I was hoping you were the amazingly kind crew that pointed us to the presence of the snow bridge and hike out of Ave Alley on Saturday Arvo. Face not ruined, low hanging fruit always prevails! So sick!

    Mate, All three of us were so stocked for the hook up. Really really were! 2 steeps into Watson's, Ave Alley, Sentinel then bordering on a white out over the top of Twynam back to camp Sunday night. Trench foot from wet boots and a lot of smiles. So good! Monday ended up being a sicky!

    Slushy corn and up those steep faces, while taxing me and my mates love to boot back up the guts. Fast and efficient.

    Bottom half would have been fine but top half best to boot.
