Stunning Photo and Ridge!

Makes me want to move to Canada, at least for the summer. ;^) Thanks for sharing.

Wow

Holy Crap! Do you want to die when you climb?! That looks pretty intense. Good work.

Re: Wow

The Sickle is where all the women from Mexico fell a number of years ago....~1954? It was one of the worst accidents in North American mountaineering history. The entire rope team fell down the face...I assume someone slipped on ice & pulled everyone else off, but please don't quote me. I've always wondered what the Sickle looked like "up close & personal" but poor conditions a few years ago turned us back so I never got to see for myself. It looks scary enough from the Lake Louise Chateau....this pic makes the pitch look even more steep than looking up from the lake. Auuugghhh!!!

sickle

Thanks .. now I know what to expect when I reach that part. Turned back in a white out last year just before the sickle. I hope to finish the job in August. Cheers William
