Hi Jurgen,

nice position, I just wondered as you seem to be inserting an ice screw, where is your rope?

cheers Johnnie

Hello Johnnie, we didn't use a rope untill this point. So the rope is still in our backpack. From here we decided to use the rope.

the same question, but saw someone else already asked. Ice screw, but no rope! Great action shot!

This is a picture of the entire face:

You can see that there is only a small section of ice.

We were soloing untill this point. We used this screw for our belay. So for the next section we did use a rope :-).

It sure was awesome! A little exiting but not dangerous, so no need to worry.

Really nice! But man, it looks like an uncomfortable place to take off the pack, get the rope out, etc. But I guess you can clip into the screws while doing that.

The snow was pretty solid, so it was comfortable to stay just below the ice. And, one does need some ice for screws.. So consider this point as a compromise :)
