The weather was looking rough around St. Nicholas.
Mt. Olive looks like a very serious undertaking, with its summit barely visible.
Our route initially took us to the ridge via the snow slope on the right. Its quite a bit steeper than it looks.
After gaining the ridge, we hit a sketchy section that was icy, narrow, and exposed, so we had to decend 25m...
We regained the ridge further to the climber's right to avoid the sketchy ridge section.

Here I am skiing down after summiting!
Here's Blanka skiing down, with a kite skier in the background.
Kerry doing the big turns...
