Re: Looks like

Thanks Koen! This was actually taken late in the evening. But you're right about one thing. It was cold! I was shivering and drinking hot tea to stay warm.

Re: Beautiful Mountain!

This is something I have comlained about: alot of photos do not say where they are taken, and alot of us out here who are homebound do not have a clue where it is. It would be so helpful if the location was stated. That aside, this photo is beautiful.

wow

gorgeous! Look at that cold north face...I don't think it has been climbed in winter, right?

Re: wow

You're right. As far as I know, the north face has not seen a single winter ascent. Even in ideal conditions, I believe it's only been climbed a small number of times.
