Wow!

Holy cow, Augie. That's quite a shot! Were you guys off route? I don't remember that kind of exposure, but then again, I wasn't looking down either. Was this taken right at the summit?

Re: Wow!

Gary,

This shot was well below the summit. I'm certain we were off route to the extent we ever were on a 3d class route.

Re: Wow!

After the black waterfall streak, did you move left up a ramp like this one?

Did you get into a chute like this?
