Cape Hauy

Hey now.


We made a half-assed attempt on the Tote’s aid route. Wrong mind set on my part…think more St. Peters Dome vs. Steins Pillar. Backed off and we bailed. We also went back to Mount Wellington and climbed the three-pitcher called Third Bird – a highly sandbagged if enjoyable 18. This time we had good weather and pretty views of Hobart some 1200 meters lower.
