That's quite...

... an amazing wall of snow there on the left -- it appears to be sculpted entirely by the winds!?

Re: That's quite...

Not sure exactly how it was sculpted but I found it to be so beautiful...I think I took about 100 pictures of grateful I only posted one!

Nice picture!

Nice, it brings back memories of my climb two weeks ago, when I also summited the Tacul. I climbed it solo, and I can still remember the fear brought on while having to climb the last couple of meters to the summit, over extremely slippery verglassed rock. While constantly slipping out on the iced rocks, I was staring at a 800 meter drop down to the Vallee Blanche ... Thanks for posting it!

Re: Nice picture!

Wow, you climbed solo? You are braver than me! Hard for me to imagine the icy conditions, when I was there the snow on the summit was absolutely perfect but I must say, I almost cried like a baby having to cross some of the crevasses. But, of all the mountains I've been lucky enough to climb, I think this one had the most beautiful summit!
