Voted 10/10

Which of the two horns is taller? both appear to havve frail composition, maybe in the unseen notch between them a gallant ramp leads to the easier summit. Excellent! 10/10

Hi Joel,

Yes, very frail construction - it looked to me that the whole structure could cascade down at any moment - just a giant pile of very sharp and very loose rocks. The point on the left is the higher - the perspective of the photo is misleading. The 4rth class route is to the left around the horns and then a steep scramble up from the far side.

thanks for the vote!
