Re: Very impressive wall!

Thanks!
Before we saw the peak live, we had thoughts about giving it a try. When seeing it we realized there was no way we could've pulled it off. Looking at it was good enough!

Re: Wow

Thanks!
One of the most impressive places I've seen. Not only the peak itself, but also the area around it.

Re: Wow

It IS!
Not sure if the north face is ever climbed. The routes on the east and south are hard stuff, but it looks really desperate from the north.
Eastern routes.
