Climbers reaching Rysy in winter conditions

Wind attacks the surface on western side of Rysy. This pic mainly shows the adventurous line which my friend and me followed upwards. It was a sudden idea.

Did you come back down the same route?

This picture does a good job of showing the climbing options. Is that to the left or right?

We used the normal route downhill joining the others...(the normal route is hidden on this photo)
The summit is to the left, so we went to the left towards that rock triangle and we tried to stay closely under the rocks then we flanked the triangle from the right. Anyway, it was dangerous enough becouse of steep snow masses.
The couloire in the middle wound have been too dangerous and an absolutely unnecessary choice.

Thank you very much!
