Thanks man! It was a great climb.
Ziet er erg gaaf uit, toch tijd voor die eerste ijsboor? :-) Mutmal spitze zou leuk zijn om nog eens te doen.
Thanks for voting and your comment!
great action shot!!
Thanks for your comment and vote Ivona :-)
nice position, I just wondered as you seem to be inserting an ice screw, where is your rope?
Hello Johnnie, we didn't use a rope untill this point. So the rope is still in our backpack. From here we decided to use the rope.
Good idea! Great shot!!
alles klar jurgen
the same question, but saw someone else already asked. Ice screw, but no rope! Great action shot!
This is a picture of the entire face:
You can see that there is only a small section of ice.
You seem to be driving in an icesrew, but I don't see a rope! Are you soloing?
We were soloing untill this point. We used this screw for our belay. So for the next section we did use a rope :-).
my heart dropped looking at this. whew! awesome..
It sure was awesome! A little exiting but not dangerous, so no need to worry.
Really nice! But man, it looks like an uncomfortable place to take off the pack, get the rope out, etc. But I guess you can clip into the screws while doing that.
The snow was pretty solid, so it was comfortable to stay just below the ice. And, one does need some ice for screws.. So consider this point as a compromise :)
