South Island Gallery / Climbing / 2014-07 Ice climbing at Wye Creek  

Ice climbing at Wye creek with Paul. We skiied in from Remarks skifield and camped at the head of the cirque, which is good for accessing the easy climbs but further from the main areas. Awesome rock hard water ice, I wish I'd sharpened everything first!!
