For the Cradle Mountain write-up.
Great effort.
Stix, Cathy and I had to go up Ossa in snow when I was doing my state-peaks attempt. We did get to the top (sounds like we had less snow than you), but could see nothing & could only figure the summit by the amount of orange peel in the rock cracks.. had to verify we had made it several years later.

Glad you enjoyed it! Thanks to Alexa for water filter advice, and boot advice. I should have paid more attention re the boots, but al least for one final use out of them:)

The hard part with the snow was that some of it was probably left over from winter and some recent, so the solidity was unpredictable. I was not confident with just the 2 of us there. If we could have made it up the top of the gully we were in we would have gotten a lot further, but it would also have been quite exposed up there... another time maybe.
