did you take this photo (very nice, BTW)? I'm considering doing this bad boy end of May, & trying to determine the difficulty & length of the approach under snow cond, etc (any advice would also be appreciated!).
Sometime back I asked Popoff about another one of his winter Thielsen shots (http://www.summitpost.com/mountains/photo_link.pl/p/photo_id__25639__object_id__276__type__mountain__mountain_id__276__route_id____user_id____order_by____limit__). That particular one was taken in February - I suspect so was this one?
