Today Karen, Rhys and I de the long slog up to Tower Scoop. It was still windy and wild, but it was freezing at around 800m. Some delays this morning caused us to get caught in a queue, but we eventually enjoyed 2 good pitches of ice. The final section being good value for the grade.
Karen topping out after the final steep bit.
The freezing level fluctuated throughout the day, and was on the rise as we left. I'd have said it was raining at 900m. All the snow that was fresh at hut level had all gone as well.
