Trip Report

We knew that we had a tough slog ahead of us as we left the summit of Gravenstafel Ridge and started our traverse to Haig. Since Mount Haig was an 1100 meter height gain and Gravenstafel Ridge was only 950 meters, with a 300 meter drop to the col between Gravenstafel and Haig, we figured that we had to gain another 500 meters from the col to the summit of Mount Haig. It didn't look like 500 meters but we were actually bang on with this number so don't say I didn't warn you! The descent down Gravenstafel was fast and easy. We took a quick break at the col - the weather and views were sublime at this spot!
