Cloud being held back by...
Cloud being held back by Striding edge. This was taken a long time ago, i slipped and slid for a few hundred feet, lucky not to get hurt big time. I then decided crampons and axe were not such a bad idea.

I saw someone take a nasty fall off Swirral Edge in similar conditions last year. Same sort of nick as in your photo. Not wearing crampons...

You have some fantastic shots yourself!

I've done striding and swirral in both crampons and no crampons in conditions like this and worse and soon realised I needed to get myself a pair, I've done this climb 9 times but 6 times in conditions such as this, people don't realize how truly dangerous this mountain is even more so in winter.
