Re: Nice work!

Did skis make this more reasonable for ascent and descent?

Re: Nice work!

Hi there ! Yes, I would definetely bring my skis again. At least it makes it much easier on the lower glacier where cracks are a very nasty problem in the late summer (towards the end of july when we where there). We heard of people going through crevasses two-three times on their way down, but we just "floated" over with our skis. I recommend skiing from the very top. It's worth the extra pounds ! Good luck !!!

all the best,

Audun

Re: How does it feel...

I'm sorry to tell that it is a totally awesome feling ;-) I can not express with words the feeling of standing there. Beeing up there with three friends and putting on my skis where one of the most beautiful moments I have ever experienced. You must really try it !!!

all the best,

Facing the Extreme

That's a book I'm reading right now about climbing Denali. I've only been to the base of Denali but it must have been great for you. Congratulations.
