At 2819m Mt Ernslaw is a fairly stylish peak to do from the Valley floor (about 350m).  We'll be heading up to Wright col and esquilant Bivvy to climb and fly from the summit.  Depending on the wind and weather conditions we may try to fly down the mighty South Face or simply down the North face and into the Rees Valley.

 

Mt Ernslaw as seen from the road to Queenstown.  The South Face is the obvious large glaciated face in the middle of the two summits.  The launch site is the highest peak on the right.
