2012-10-13 | Little Arethusa | 2769m | 4.7km | 758m rolling gain.
Both Peter and I had plans for later so a short one was in order. The starting point for this one is just south of Highwood Pass, so a high elevation starting point. No fooling around, this one climbs steady thru the trees (found a larch or two!!) then up scree to the final bit of slightly exposed ridge.
It was a cool start, but not too bad, although the gusty wind and blowing snow added to the ambiance with the very photogenic clouds. Followed fairly fresh wolf tracks up into the cirque but as expected no visuals.
