Mount Roberts

Today was Mount Roberts part 2. This time we made it – and what a day it was. Hot! We were peeling off clothing down to our T-shirts 10 minutes after setting out. And not once did we have to layer up again. Far from it. “Why didn’t I wear my shorts?”

And, of course, the sun was reflecting off the snow in a perfect, cloudless sky.

It was a pretty awesome day. We plodded up about 900 metres to the summit of Mount Roberts, being very careful to stay off the rather large cornices. The sky was deep blue, the views were amazing and the peak we sat on allowed a kind of precarious perch. What I mean is, you didn’t want to keep looking straight down while munching on your sandwich.

We had a lovely time – travelled about 15K in 6.5 hours.

And made plans to go back next week to summit Record Mountain – about 200 or so metres higher. Yay! I do so love being in the alpine.
