Al and Mark on the Grenzsattel
We were very happy with the conditions on this ridge.
On the eastern side (the sunny one), the drop off is more than 2000 meters, and if you fall, it's too steep to have anything but a remote chance to self arrest. On the western side it's only marginally better, but if you don't stop a fall yourself immediately, you still have another chance a couple hundred meters lower down, when it gets a bit less steep - provided you don't hit a rock or fall into a crevasse first. Better not to fall then...
