Great weather and amazing views made for a great few days up on the Annette Plateau. With the weather forecast looking OK we decided to head straight from Mt Cook village to just below Mt Annette to bivi for the night.
We spent some time on the way learning about navigation in the mountains plus cramponing, and other travel techniques to get up the Annette Plateau.
Arriving at the bivi spot we set up for the night and took advantage of the great views in all directions. We where lucky that most of the rock walls where already there and little work was required to get comfortable for the night. After dinner a quick ascent of Mt Annette was required to get the last of the light.
Next morning was more training with pitching and steeper climbing techniques covered.
With the weather forecast not looking so good we headed for Mueller hut with the plan of more learning in the morning and then decent to the Village. The weather did start to change with winds increasing but still no rain.
Made for a great start to the day and then descended as the wind really picked up. Now in Mt Cook village and have new snow on the hills overnight so a day of theory today and some rock climbing on Friday when the weather clears again.
