This was the first day of a two day trip that Brenda organized for the ACC.
Thankfully we got 10-15cm of fresh snow overnight which helped to take the edge off the diabolical death crust. We headed back to Lookout Col while the other half of the group went to the Vaux Moraines.
We were glad to have checked out the route the previous day because it clagged in pretty badly for a couple of hours before clearing again near the col.
There was a wide range of skill levels so there were some tired legs at the end of the day but people seemed happy overall.
Doing a traverse and returning by a different route always adds something to the day.
