Wow.

How high is that? (That is...how far the rappel?)

Re: Wow.

We did a full 30 m rappel; then we glissaded. When the snow melts, there's a bit of downclimbing after a 35 m rappel. Two 50 m ropes will take you to the end of the difficulties.

Great shot

It just doesn't look that steep from Chasm View

Re: Great shot

Thanks! The one with the eyebolts is the only truly steep section of the North Face. I suspect that from Chasm View you get more a perception of the average angle of the face.
