...under your toes. Nice capture. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you Sarah. I think it was about 400 meters of air, but it felt like 2000 meters :-)
... and lofty looking action shot. Thanks for posting. Cheers.
Thanks for your nice comment. I try to post some more. Cheers!
Beautiful view! Great moment captured nicely. Well done!
Thanks! I agree, the view was stunning that day..
Great to see a climbing photo as POTD.
Yes, I think that's a while ago..
great shot, its always exciting coming off an airy traverse like that and wondering how hard the moves up the wall around the corner are going to be! The pro looks bomb proof though!
You're right about the pro, it is very solid. Therefore this isn't the crux anymore, it just airy. I can imagine how exiciting it must have been for the first climbers to take this traverse. I think it was kind of a point of no return.
really fun shot - too bad it's bolted now :)
Thanks! Despite the bolt's the traverse is still pretty exposed..
Thanks for sharing it!
Added to the album Deep view.
You're welcome and thanks for adding it to the Deep view album.
You photos bring back so many memories! Allot of climbers use to climb this route back in the late sixties and seventies as one of the preparations in climbing the Eiger North Face. I did the route several times in '72 in good and bad weather and in winter.
It must have been adventures to climb in the alps back then.. No bolts on this route I guess, just some pegs and a strong mind. It would be nice if you have some photo's from the route! I would love to see them.
it`s bolted but, as you say it does not destract that the exposure is the same, great photo well worth being `photo of the week`, good job :)
Breath takin.... the scale of this snap is just incredible... thanks for postin
