I’ve been looking at Terrace Peak from home for more than 15 years. It’s west face glows in the afternoon sun. It’s all about timing, the right people and weather. Early September and it’s too dangerous (avalanches), too late and all the snow has gone. Finally pulled it off with Steve Moffat and Jeremy Lyttle over the last two days. 1700m climb from the Hunter Valley. Most likely a first ski descent. You can’t beat epic times so close to home with good mates…..
