I might spend a longer time in Canada soon. This one could make my ski descent wish list. What a face! Do you know whether there are many crevasses in the lower part of the face?
Nice shot!

Cheers,

Re: Canada

TA, the bergshrund is significant...otherwise not horribly broken up on the face itself, but down below it is...I know of no one who has skied it to date. The normal descent route is the right hand ridge. Look me up when you get here, cheers.
