    I found going up to the ridge quite challenging from Stanley’s Name Spur. I’m not sure if recommend going down with a full pack. One of our group had terrible vertigo and that 1 or 2km up from the camp on the saddle below took a lot of coaxing (with the others dragging he pack up between them).

      Liz Marr I’ve always gone down the spur but I don’t mind a technical scramble.
