Here are some photos from our successful summit attempt on Mount Field in April 2013
with Graham and Mark.

While I had suggested Cathedral or Town Gully, Graham had a MUCH better idea and that was to try to
summit Mt Field. Here are Graham and his friend Mark as we started our day. This day started at
a little after 4 at my house as we wanted to beat the incoming weather.

Most of the roadway up to the trailhead was covered, but the bottom portion didn't have a boatload
of snow on it.

Here are Graham and Mark making their way up the small trees in the bottom of the route.

A nice view of the peak to the looker's left of our route.

This is looking down the valley to Takkakaw Falls.

Check out the cornices in this shot. Wow!

We didn't have a lot of visibility on the way up, but enough to keep ourselves safe.

Some nice-looking cliff bands for contrast. Our route is to the left of here.

Here's Mark looking back down valley.

We got just a touch of sunlight as we were making the push after a snack towards the summit.

There isn't a pile of contrast here, but you can see Mark and Graham as we're making our way around.

We got a bit of a glimpse towards the President and Vice-President.

Mark along with the President in the background (I think).

This couloir drops down to the highway and looked a little scary.

Graham gives this day the stamp of approval. This is just before we made the push to the summit.

Mark put the last skin track in as we were a little scared of the top bit. Check out the cornice
above him!

Graham and I on the top of Mt Field. We had a storm pop in about 2 minutes after this photo was taken.
We had dynamite powder on the way out (for half of the descent) and even had face-shots in the powder!
However, the bottom half was less-than-stellar and consumed the most energy breaking through the crust.
All in all, 4 and half hours from car to summit, so not a bad way to spend a Saturday morning!
