Climbers

Climbers

In the late afternoon of 6 November 2014, Mark and I climbed Ball Ridge. When we arrived at our destination on the ridge, we met a group of climbers who were planning to traverse along the Ball Pass which was further ahead of our location.

I hand-held my camera and took this shot as they continued their climb. The next day morning we met them again during our a summit climb, and the leader said they could not proceed their Ball Pass traverse due to an unsafe snow situation there.
