After a perfect day on Mount Joffre I woke up the team at 03:30 on Sunday morning for an attempt at my 400th peak - Mount Marlborough. We packed up camp under a clear, cool sky and soon found ourselves under the approach gully up the north west side of the mountain.
After summiting Lion Peak, it was time to traverse over to Lioness for our second summit of the day. I'll admit, I was very skeptical that this summit deserved a "summit" rating but I wasn't going to argue about it since it is an officially named peak. After doing the traverse I don't have a problem with it anymore.
