DeanGreat shot


Voted 10/10

I really like this one and it is strange to see that someone has given this one 3's. Oh well, I'll do what I can to right a wrong.

Thanks. Someone went thru and voted down all of David's and my photos from our climb. It should get corrected overnight and I guess the guy was identified and warned.

Thanks for the vote and comments, Dean.

Nice work... know you are happy to get a route on that side of the mountain after a couple of false starts this Spring.

Be honest, how un-nerving was the climbing? Looks like you guys were pretty exposed.

The only couple of parts that got me thinking were the traverse on soft powdery snow right before the last gully (dkantola submitted a photo of me on it that mpbro made some comments about the angle). That felt like it could slide pretty easily under my feet.

The other part was a small narrow opening about 4 feet wide we took to avoid a gully with heavier icefall. The snow had melted and there was exposed rock and ice at about 70 degrees for maybe 10 feet that was a bit above the previously mentioned point. I don't have much experience with mixed stuff. I did take note of how far I would slide if I slipped there. :- )

But it was all pretty straight forward. The exposure was there but it was never unnerving. I really enjoyed it overall and would like to do more like it. I did use my shorter axe and a second ice tool though and felt pretty secure while David and Vincenzo were comfortable with just their axes.
