Can you say us the angle of climb? Did you need ice screws for climbing that slope? Thanks.

Hi Diego,



the average angle of this specific north face route we did (Chabod/Grivel) is according to the guide book

a) in the first part: 50 degrees

b.) in the middle section: 45 degrees and

c) in the upper part: 55 degrees.



We had a short overhanging and vertical part of about 30 to 45 feet high where we had to cross a big crevasse a the key section of the ice climb.



If you take my picture as a reference it would lead to a wrong conclusion; it is a bit steeper than one would expect.



However, we had excellent conditions and didn´t use neither ice srews nor any other belay - it was just not necessary.



Regards,

Bernhard
