Left: For a climber, the aptly named
Unas Tits (Una exists and lives on in Australia) is probably
the most cherished feature in the maritime Antarctic. Our attempt at a new line
was around the left hand corner on the north face.
Centre: Caradoc Crag Jones traipsing up the glacier
below the Towers on Cape Renard, Le Maire Channel.
Right: Crag on the difficult rock pitches below the
central couloir. After a memorable bivvy at the top of the snow ramp, we
retreated the next day 150 meters below the summit when the natural line ran
into the headwall - too wet, horribly overhanging with rockfall we were also
out of fuel (which might have been a blessing!) The northen nipple (left) has
been climbed twice before, but the southern one remains delectably inviolate.
