Comments
Comments: Great day out but the conditions turned to white out conditions as we got higher in elevation. Made the attempt to even make it to the hut impossible. We made it to treeline and then had to turn back. Fun day out regardless. It's not always about making it to the summit. It's about the company and the love of the outdoors!!
