Two easy bonus peaks snatched on our backpack to Froze-To-Death Plateau
When we woke up we found that we were above a thick layer of clouds!

We decided to check out the connecting ridge between Tempest Mountain and Mount Peal. The summit of Mount Peal is tantalizingly close but two notches stand between us and it. The first notch looked like it could be negotiated (very lose though). I have much less confidence about the second, deeper notch. The rock quality is poor enough that I don't think its worth messing with.
