Great Shot !

Hey Miguel !
Unfortunately, we could not capture the last 500 ft in any of our photos (busy and scared climbing)....but this is a very good photo...give you a good sense of inclination...
I would say, it was more than 50 deg...

Re: Great Shot !

That slope is consistent in its grade at 40 degrees. No way it is even close to 50. Slope angles are always deceiving.
