Ascent Trip Report

Attempted as part of 9Peaks9Weeks. Started raining almost as soon as we left Injusuthi, walked in heavy rain all the way to Marble Baths were we called it a day and slept in the smaller of the 2 caves. Following day started well so we headed on to the base of Leslie's pass, but then the weather got worse. Realized that we will;l not make it up the pass so camped at the base, heavy snow all night and woke up to amazing sight of white peaks all around us. Will have to try for Mafadi another day..
