my share of these Martin, fine line between wanting to glissade and downclimbing depending on conditions....cheers...
Exactly. Yeah, the snow there was pretty crispy. Thanks for the vote.
Thanks man. Yeah, it defintely takes a lot longer than glissading or plungestepping, but there was an icy crust about 4" down. Definately well beyond our comfort level to glissade that.
And nice perspective. Always better to be safe, and live to play another day!
