Mount Nelson, East Ridge, Southern Purcells. The east ridge of Mount Nelson is the most direct route to the summit starting from Paradise Mine. On June 23 Hans Gyr and I left the mine, followed the ridge and traversed along the southern slopes of Mount Trafalgar to gain the Trafalgar-Nelson col. From here mainly 3rd and 4th-class climbing on decomposed rock, with a short 5th-class pitch on a band of solid conglomerate rock near the top, led to the summit. The climb could conveniently be combined with a traverse of Trafalgar.
