Great trip with Wietse and Kevin. Good views but for the haze.
Long walk – 24 km – 1350 m – 9 hrs RT
Very good trail to Niles meadow and also up East side of valley to base of Niles. Best/fastest to use drainage gully directly to Niles up and down and best to bypass most of boulder field on the west and circle around to left (NW) of lowest pinnacle and then right of big pinnacle. Reasonable up trail from there. Mostly hiking as only took my hands off the poles once on the upper ridge.
