Yesterday for the final day of the Adventure Peaks Mountaineering course we joined the masses on Ledge Route in glorious conditions. We quickly got ahead of a couple of larger groups and made good time to the plateau moving together alpine style.
Number 4 gully contained some patches of soft windslab but these were easily avoided and once through the narrows we made good time back down to the van.
It was a pleasure to meet Erik Weihenmayer on the way down. The first and only blind person to summit Mt Everest and also to complete the 7 Summits. He'd just made an ascent of Point 5 Gully and the CIC Cascade over the previous couple of days
