Tower Ridge - half summer half winter
What a difference a day make. It was quite impressive to see how much had changed from yesterday. Many ice smears from yesterday had disappeared snow had retreated and plenty of water running in the river. The Curtain had fully fallen down, Point 5 in now incomplete, Smiths route looks like it could barely take bodyweight, Hadrian's is in a coffin. Whilst we were climbing Tower Ridge, I couldn't see any obvious climbable routes except the usual's like some of the numbered gullys, and the ridges. The thaw is doing some damage. But not to worry, it will go cold sooner or later and it will be amazing again.
