Dionysius and I got a nice early start on this morning to finally ascend the East End of Mount Rundle.
Unfortunately, I've been sick lately, and deteriorated as we ascended, causing us to turn around the very end of treeline.

First view upslope to the scramble.

With me feeling better at the bottom, we did a little hike up Grassi Lakes to salvage the day, and take a look at the rock.
