is seen climbing the steep couloir below the constriction. My wife asks me why we weren't roped up and I don't blame her! But the snow was very solid, and by planting two tools securely with each step, we achieved maximum security, balanced against the time it would take for fixed belays in a very changeable part of the mountain (a garbage chute to the trash compactor!).
The rock on the right belongs to the rarely climbed Razorback Ridge (5.9).
