An opportunity to get back up the Hinde could not be skipped. Iwas coming straight from guiding 4 days on the North Island but the weather looked great so Sarah and I met for another day of Strathcona play. Sleep deprived before they even started at 3am, it was a long day in challenging terrain. But tagging the summit and having a look around is why we do it right. Lost some serious time on the final push to the summit as there was another party in front of us down climbing beside the snow and releasing rocks. We had to do the same when we switched places, allowing them to clear the route in order for us to keep working upwards. A great day was had.
