There's a lot of good fortune with anything. Having a great spell of weather in the Karakorum's would be one and having an early winter with lots of miserable weather here would be a second - than you have to grab the fortune when it presents itself. With another raging South Wester about the tops and a small snow storm going on it was a day to race up and make the most of it. Rain, sleet , snow ,ice and wind - 5 seasons of weather in 6 good hours scurrying around behind Winter peak and Mt Arthur. Not much to see in photos - mainly white - highlight of day was sliding blocks of snow that had broken of the wind formed cornice on the Arthur ridge and tumbled down the mountain off the side off a cliff and watch them cascade a bit further - not for long though to cold and windy to hang around.
