SUMMIT OF SINGLE CONE ON THE REMARKABLES

BACK TO JOURNAL

Alexander and I have just spent nine days in Queenstown, using this time to do more climbing training and push ourselves out of our comfort zone before heading back to the Himalayas. Doing a climbing trip together is more than just a team-bonding experience, it's also about becoming more mature climbers; learning to make the decisions around weather and climbing conditions. Here we are atop Single Cone Peak, which is one of the three peaks along the Grand Traverse of the Remarkables.
