Trip Report

From Kiwetinok Peak we traversed over to Pollinger. The climb down Kiwetinok to the col was a bit tricky because we couldn't risk glissading the slush / ice slabs and had to pick our way down wet slabs. The terrain is also horribly loose and even though we were extremely careful, we still managed to set loose a number of large rocks. On hindsight it's a good thing we didn't have a large group on this mountain.
