The Rime Traverse
February 15th, 2010 - Nearly done traversing over numerous rime-covered ribs, we finally got to climb more straight up the slopes. This stretch was really fun - lots of exposure, and slopes starting at 40 degrees and maxing out at 50 degrees at the top. I think I'd want to climb with a rope and pickets here in hard snow conditions. Earlier stretches didn't have much space between the rock bands.

For convenience, I'm calling this stretch the "Rime Traverse".

Gives good perspective on the angle. Hard to do in my experience.
