Hi, apologies for stopping activation early on HB/VS-028 yesterday. We had gone up the south ridge (SSW ridge) so were unsure of descent route (West ridge). Ascent took longer than expected because of snow high on ridge, altitude and my lack of fitness. It was cold on summit, cloud blew in from south and first flakes of snow fell. Safety of party meant I abandoned activation and started descent, which was uneventful. We even caught the final lift down. Apologies to those who were still calling. Will try to do better next time.
