Mount Walter, First Ascents, January 2011
On Tuesday January 11 I flew up to Tasman Saddle Hut with Kester, Paul and Shelley with the intention of climbing first ascents on the west faces of mountains Walter, Green or Ellie de Beaumont. We were lucky enough to put up two new alpine rock routes on the west face of Mt Walter. The West Rib, 8 pitches up to grade 16, and Stuntman and Chronic, 4 pitches of grade 18. The pictures and video below tell the rest of the story.
