I very rarely repeat mountains. Very, very rarely. I just don't see the point. The name of my web site provides insight to the whole point of hiking, scrambling, skiing and climbing for me - exploring new areas. But every once in a while I get an itch to do a repeat for whatever reason. Sometimes it's just that the mountain is that much fun but usually it's because I didn't get great photos or views the first time. Such is the case with Mount Cory.
