Ascending Aemmers Couloir on the north west face of Mount Temple. It took us a relentless 4 hours of slogging through knee and then waist deep snow from the base of the couloir to the top. The last 50m involved delicate kick steps into a skiff of facetted snow hanging precariously to the remenants of an old glacier. But the ascent is really what ski touring is all about isn't it?
