Egmont Alpine Club

Fantham's Peak 2009

Again, in preparation for the open climb, the Mt Egmont Alpine Club organised a fatham's Peak climb two weeks before on the 26th January. I took the Nikon D50 in a new front harness, which doesn't seem to obscure my view of foot placement, but it can be a bitch to get off & on (as in getting on warmer clothing).
