Ascent Trip Report

We ran out of time for this one. High winds Fri pm and all day Sat; we were flying home Sun pm, otherwise Sunday would have worked. As we leave camp at 0400 the wind has largely dropped and the icy summit pinnacle is just showing through the cloud.

We head instead for Heidharhorn.

Note: the snow cat goes up from the ENE; was parked at about 600m when we were there, presumably varies depending on how high they can drive in their 4x4 van. The road was closed beyond that point due to snow. Our plan was to hike the snow cat route. With a standard 2wd vehicle it should be possible to drive part way up; maybe all the way; the dirt road up from the coast is a little steep and rough in places.
