Revisiting Howling Ridge for first proper Alt-lead ascent. Lead every second pitch. Much better conditions this time with amazing views, rain came in for a pitch or two but nothing major.

A return to climb Howling Ridge after a guided accent in terrible conditions. Much better day. We climbed in two groups of 2, alternating most leads. Small bit of rain drifted in for one pitch, but a dry and mostly clear day!

Great weather (really lucky) and a good route with the wife (over from England for a family wedding). Simple climbing but lots of loose stuff. Not really a 'climb' but a good top end scramble.
Zoomer - Lead O/S - 07/May/15 with Julia Bloomer

Guided climb, I was middle man on a three man rope. Absolutely horrendous conditions for this, no visibility, very strong wind and extremely wet and slippery conditions made this one a challenge, great stuff!

A bit loose here and there but an entertaining way up especially in the wind.
