excellent

Thats the best picture I have seen that in some ways explains how exposed one feels on that route.

Thrilling!

I wonder what was going on in the mind of the first ascensionist! Porbably something like, "Uhhh.....I better not fall here."

WOW!

Most pictures lose perspective and depth but this one is awesome. If you fell unroped, it looks like you might land in that alpine lake way down there. Great job.
