Mount Aicken, Neuseeland: Trip with the Trampingclub
About 1100m climb, straight up and down again: Our Mount Aicken CUTC - Trip, rating: medium. The weather - forecast told us to be back early, crappy conditions were expected for the afternoon. The info - center told us about high avalanche - risk, but our route did not cross the dangerous slopes.
Stew thinks about, if it would have been better to take a track not that steep.
But soon we hit the bushline and the fog / clouds in the valley vanished.
Amazing iceneedles covered the ground. (Don't ask me, why they are like they are and how they are generated, I don't know, I even don't have a name for this phenomenon.)
