Looking good, hopefully I will be up there in a week. Did you guys take any measurements of the snow depths on the ice field around the different huts? Not sure if you guys have done it before but did you notice any sags in places that don't normally have any?

a good 260 cm up near the St. Nich/Olive Col, and deeper than the probe could reach at the Balfour High Col. For some reason there was only about 4 feet of snow on the ice in the crux crevasse area on the Balfour High Col route, but everything was well bridged. There has been new snow up there since we went through on Saturday by the sounds of things.
