MRBC's ambassador Antony von Chrismar returns to his winter stomping ground and reports on his time out there, with photographer Lach Humphreys.
Arriving in Guthega car park late Friday evening, Lach Humphreys and I set off skinning through the snow gums. Light cast by a near full moon, the silence was broken only by the sliding of our skins and the odd wombat ducking for cover.
Despite the recent snow fall, wind scouring was evident on exposed aspects - the rain layer from the previous weekend showing its head. Reading the mountain and figuring out where the wind-blown snow is stashed, the objective for the day is rolled around in the mind. Line scoping and the likely objective for the day materialises a top Tennison Woods Knoll...the seasons objective ain't going to happen today, but we will score POW!
Descending Twynam on sunset and navigating wind slabbed ice was both a treat and a challenge... the reward being rehydrated warmth in the belly.
