Occasional Climber

Mt Taranaki via Fantham’s Peak, Aug 2008

Arriving at a completely rime ice encrusted Syme Hut, after dark, in a blizzard
Open Seasame!?
Much kinder sunrise conditions, now with a half excavated hut door (but an entirely useless throne)
Syme Hut entrance and main summit
Inside the rime encrusted Syme Hut
About to set off for the main summit
Crossing the dip between Fanthams Peak and the main summit
At about 2,200m, looking back to Fanthams Peak
Just about to cross the crater rim at 2,400m, view south
Departing the main summit
On the descent to Fanthams Peak
