Re: Great shot!

We didn't have a clinometer, but we agreed that it gradually increased up to about 60 degrees near the top.

Re: Great

It's on Nokhu Crags in the northern part of the Never Summer Range. The area is spectacular, but the rock is consistently rotten all over the range (though there are a few exceptions). Thus snow climbs like this are some of the best ways to climb up there. My other favorite mountain in the Never Summer Range is Static Peak. Its east ridge offers probably the best class-3 scramble I've ever done.
