Mount Thompson from Mount Habel.
Ski mountaineering: Wess and I decided to go up to the summit of Thompson even if the visibility was not that great. We had just ascended Rhondda South and upon return, at the base of the south-westerly slopes, we couldn't resist the short easy climb to the top! Fab dug himself a snow cave in the meantime; he was not feeling very good that day.
