East Stanley Ridge – Ball Attempt 2 Alpine climb


East Ridge of Mount Stanley – Mount Ball attempt


Great Alpine climb along East ridge of Stanley in an attempt to ramble along the continental divide over Beatrice and do Mount Ball. Stopped by 5th class bump before Beatrice- lack of equipment, poor rock, route finding and time. Overall great adventure in fantastic setting.

We did 1700 m and took 14 hrs RT.   Note really need to do this as two day by bivi in stanley valley and start early. Total elevation gain will be 2200 to 2300 m.
