Trip Report

After climbing Mount Sir Douglas on the weekend, I wasn't expecting anything spectacular for the following week. To be honest, as much fun as Sir Douglas was, I was feeling a bit burnt out and thought I needed a week off. Then the weather got nice. Then Ben and I started emailing. Then I found myself planning to leave Thursday evening for a shot at Mount Victoria - North Peak! Darn it. Nobody said being a peakbagger was going to be easy. wink
