Grey Tower and Mushroom Ridge
From camp 2, we will climb a steep snow ridge through the 'Grey Tower'; a 20m rock step of a 'Severe' grade, and then some multiple scrambling pitches in snow, rock and ice. When we leave the rock of the Grey Tower and move onto pure snow we will know that we are not far from the 'Mushroom Ridge'. This is a very exposed traverse line, an airy walk which varies from year to year. We will need to be steady in our crampons and steady in our minds as we tip toe along the crest.
