Although it was quite pleasant at times down at sea level, it was another stormy day on the summit. Again, there was not much to see at higher levels. It is looking very mild, wet and windy tomorrow. This may help to improve mountaineering conditions in the long run. However, during shorter term (tomorrow) this is going to create a period of instability as the snowpack gets saturated, and perhaps a period of slight annoyance for myself as my sock get saturated.

Looking down the Goose.

The summit hut. The thaw  freeze cycles of the past few days have turned the rime on the side of the hut to some pretty substantial chunks of ice. 

The top of the summit tow with a bit of brightness behind. Although at times some blue sky was visible, it never really cleared up.
