Crawling across the Knife Edge

Crawling across the Knife Edge

Mark Nieport is waiting for Steve while he scoots it across the Knife Section. Expecting some ice along this section but nothing to set any screws into, just enough however, to make it precarious.

Did you come back that route, and if so how? Read the report, but not knowing the area etc can't quite figure it out!

Great photo. Brings on my vertigo just looking at it.

Re: Gulp!

Yep. We came back across that route. On the descent, it wasn't nearly as 'puckering' as it was going up. With the exception of a couple spots on this section of the ridge, most of it is fairly good.

Looks like an exciting climb. Glad you were able to do it safely.

Wow, that gives as whole new definition to "knife-edge." Also, I likewise thought that was Everest from the photo.

Re: Wow

Looking at it, I can definitely see how you & Konrad would think it's Everest. It actually does look like Everest at first glance.

Re: wow

Thank you!! Fortunately, the rock is fairly secure along this section. Still a bit 'puckering' though.

That is INSANE! I can attest to this, since I simply climbed it in the mild summer months. Bravo!

It's so similar!

Looks like there are lots of mountains that have an edge like this. In Bulgaria, in Pirin mountain, we have an edge called Koncheto (The Horse), cause some tourists are advancing on it by riding it, instead of walking (like on this picture) =)

Appreciate the comments, Rodeo and master!! It's amazing how when you add a bit of snow and ice, the same mountain in winter is a whole different beast!

Re: what a pussy!

HA! Actually, I'm the one taking the picture. That's my buddy Steve. I said he was using some manuever called the 'Happy Dog, Flying Lotus Position'. Though he doesn't watch anime or Kurosawa, so he had no idea what I was talking about!
