Re: nice

Baffin Island is an island in northeastern Canada... its just a little smaller than France making it the fifth largest island on earth and home to some exceptional peaks.

Re: Wow - now THAT'S a line

More like a crzy line to me... but I'm not nearly adept anough on skis to tackle something like that... but it does look damn cool! That is beyond debate far as I'm concerned.

Wow - sweet pic. I wonder if that ever turns to ice. I'd love to hit that with my ice axes! ;^)

Wow!

Great shot of a peak I'm sure most of us would have never heard of.

Re: Wow!

Thanks... I hadn't heard of it until fairly recently either... its that obscure... though probably not for long.

How do i get there?

Amazing looking line, i saw this in a backcountry guide book and hae been obsessed ever since. How did you access the chute and how difficult is the approach?
