My inexperience may be showing here, but it feels a lot scarier than it looks from this photo.
Nope, it's that scary. I was up there soloing yesterday. I got halfway up the first chimney before hail the size of golfballs and lightning started falling all around me. I had to downclimb and come back across with everything soaked and slick as snot.
I think everybody who's climbed more than a day or two in the Teton's can relate. I got nailed on the Middle while descending an off route coulior. Lucky for me I had no fifth class to wander through while we got dumped on. Got buzzed by my ice axe by close lightning. That wasn't so fun.
Great pic. Definitely looks scary! That is the alternative to the "belly crawl", correct?
