Description

Resolution Mountain, and the huge bowl facing east below the peak, cry out to be skied when viewed from the hut. While this climb up to the peak on a windy ridge is relatively safe, the bowl below is likely to be extremely dangerous.

There's not much you need to know about this one - as long as the visibility is good, just climb directly up the ridge to the summit. There are no real obstacles.
