Mt Oates

Mt Oates is the lovely classical looking mountain you see still in the sun if you are peering in the gloom up the Mingha waiting for your loved one to stumble out of their first Coast to Coast training run. We apprached it from Williams saddle, following its southern ridge till just past where both these photos are taken looking in different directions. We then sidled high through the old snow fields to obtain the easy western ridge we followed to the lower summit. The descent past Lake Mavis and Goat pass completes a lovely long day mission.
