Re: Yeowie!

Thanks Deb, looks worse than it is...like all climbs, when you break it down into parts, it mellows some....cheers

Wow X Eeek!

Thanks for posting.

Any chance you shot anything "closer" of the "snow stratigraphy"?

I'm sure you had nothing else on your mind...

Re: Wow X Eeek!

Your right Don, just wanted to reach the summit at this point. But I agree, one of the neater formations I have seen. My best shot of it is this one. Unique deal was a very deep crevase right at the summit, where one would suspect there to be rock, was a huge hole. Would be so easy for some unsuspecting scrambler coming up the southwest ridge to fall into it. I think I have read where that happened, but Alpine accident reports website is down right now. Cheers.

Re: Amazing patterns/formation!

Thanks Radek, hope you are having a great season. Weather up north has been exceptional for climbing, prob not good for global warming....cheers
