On the cold and blustery top of the saddle, we paused briefly to check out the view and stuff-in a late elevenses bar. Right over there in the distance is Mt. Aspiring again. We’d seen a glimpse of her from the other side on Cascade Saddle with Ollie & Nico. That seems like weeks ago now, and it’s taken all this time to get back down here and round the back ;) Check out the slab of face missing from one side.
Yep pretty good view up here at 1680 m on Mt Martha Saddle. I wasn’t expecting to see Mt Aspiring, looks completely different from this side. It’s ringed by three different glaciers, each gradually carving the mountain into a pyramid type shape, not unlike the Matterhorn in the Alps.
