The first climbing section is about 300m shortly after leaving the hut.
After the initial climb you arrive to the flats atop the Wapta glacier. Our first objective is South Rhondda at left.
This guy had build what looks like an igloo, but could be a quintzee, on the flats.
Looking back towards St. Nicholas and Mt. Olive in behind it.
Getting closer to Rhondda.
Some interesting contours looking towards Mt. Gordon (you can just see the tip of it's summit poking over the ridge on the left)
