|What a great instructor team looks like: Lindsey, Becca and Lead Instructor Andrea|
With their support, I climbed the hardest (as in most vertical route) I’ve ever done, and climbed a simpler one with just one ice axe to have the opportunity to work on footing.
|Starting at the bottom of the most vertical climb I've ever done.|
|Andrea caught this shot of a much more tired version of me almost at the top.|
|A victory moment on finally reaching the shore of Knight Island.|
|With my patient and wiser fellow trekkers, Jon and Michelle before we began the trek back.|
When we reached the island I declared victory, drank my hot chocolate that was there to reward all those who made the trek, and having learned my lesson, donned my microspikes for the much-quicker shoreline march.
