Spectacular views from the top. We slept on the summit of the peak and during the night the weather became really bad. The little tent flapped in the gale force winds. It was about minus 8 degrees C outside. It snowed the whole night and the next morning we had to dig out the tent from the snow. It was real "white-out" conditions and we waited a few hours before we hiked down again. Luckily the route down is quite easy. It was really an amzing experience and my first time in snow. I went with the Mountain Club of South Africa.
