Descending to Domjoch from Taschhorn 4490m

Descending from the Taschhorn in 1986, the ridge crest became so narrow we had to drop below the crest to teeter above the 3000ft abyss on the west side of the ridge.

Re: Sweet!

The crest wasn't stable at all - you could punch a fist through and see through to the other side. Conditions were somewhat warm which didn't help - and we were fortunate that there was minimal cornice.
