Little Hector

Little Hector, a high point (3125 M) on the ridge North of glaciated Mount Hector almost defeated me.  After a bad initial route choice left me on an airy ridgewalk, and then a sketchy traverse and partial downclimb across steep slabs, I was treated to very harsh light which meant that only two photos (with the medium format camera) were taken that day.  If this wasn’t enough, I was forced into a thick bushwhack for the last 45 minutes.  Fun!  In the end, I was rewarded with a great view of the Molar Passes, Hector Lake, and the Hector glacier.  The Google Earth data is also very good for this area, so I may use it for the project.
