Awesome Photo!

It's difficult to see just how steep/vertical this snow wall is at this angle... and it was *very* steep!!!... but seeing an actual person on it helps show just how tall/long it is.

It's steep!

Did a solo climb last weekend and this was by far the most difficult part. Was very concious that being alone meant a mis-step would be a bad thing. Fortunately it's not too long and you have to love a self-belay!
