Great views...

Coming off the summit and down into the Owens chute. SE glacier straight ahead with the Minarets behind. The chute was very chossy and loose....not all that fun, but the views distracted me nicely!

Angle on that glacier!?!?

Wow, that angle on the glacier is steep! Coming down that Owens chute, was that mostly a boot ski? Thanks.

Re: Angle on that glacier!?!?

Well, the angle of the photo is deceptive. The beginning of the Owens chute is barely visible in the bottom left portion of the pic. It was just a very loose rock and chossy chute that led down to the bottom of the SE glacier. You actually never get on snow since you can skirt the glacier below.
