Default Sleeping Beauty (South Crown)

3 hours after heading up from the car park we were still in trees with no sign of the peak, the weather closed in and the temperature plummeted, we decided to give it another half hour or so, the thought of going back down wasn't very appealing, i'd gone thru the large part of a roll of flagging tape marking the route, hit a couple of steep sections, we were on a ridge now the bush lessened and we made good progress and soon came to an open area which made a good lunch spot, the weather had changed for the better too.

Heading onwards winding thru trees and bush we got a glimpse of what i assumed was the summit area, covered in trees, a bit of route finding, couple of steep bits and were finally on the summit, marked by a cairn,in about 4 hours.

Heading down the snow we spot the first flagging of the day leading along the ridge, half an hour or so and we arrive at the junction to Hanes valley. Make good time to the chalet, 7 hours in total, satisfying trip.
