Trip Report

After scrambling up Mount Schaffer on Thursday, I decided that a long hike followed by a scramble up Wiwaxy Peaks would be in order for Friday, October 1 2010.

Wonderful documentation! Loved it. I did the hike solo up from the EP Hut to the Gap on 7 Oct 2016 and descended the Huber Ledges to Oesa in a full blown snowstorm. Almost got lost on the ledges twice! Very tricky! Looking at your pictures from 6 years ago, it brings home the fact that weather plays such a critical part in the mountains, can mean the difference between life and death!

Thanks! And yes. Weather plays a critical role in the mountains and all outdoor adventure.
