Mission to Mermoz.
We decided we'd had enough of heavy packs on moraine and stormy tentbound days. Our solution was a sleepless single push on Mermoz, Fitzroy's neighbour. We left town after dinner and arrived at the base of the 18-pitch route just before dawn.
The first six hours of climbing was frozen choss covered in verglas and long shivering belays, we questioned our sanity.
On the sunny, windless summit ridge that was instantly forgotten - golden granite, spectacular views of Fitzroy, fast entertaining climbing, and the descent was a non-event.
After 30hrs on the go, we lay down in the forest for a comfortable bivvy near the road. This was rudely interrupted an hour later with hard rain at 5am, and the sufferfest resumed..
