Got near enough to the top through heavy rain and lots of snowy patches. But decided to descend the same route after it started getting late and not knowing the conditions on top due to cloud, or the way down the east ridge.

"A long rock scramble by the side of a frozen stream was quite thrilling and some innocent step cutting and cramponing on a sixty foot easy angled ice flow was valuable practice" EEK!
