Ziet er erg gaaf uit, toch tijd voor die eerste ijsboor? :-) Mutmal spitze zou leuk zijn om nog eens te doen.

Invisible rope

Hi Jurgen,

nice position, I just wondered as you seem to be inserting an ice screw, where is your rope?

cheers Johnnie

Re: Invisible 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.

I was going to ask

the same question, but saw someone else already asked. Ice screw, but no rope! Great action shot!

Re: I was going to ask

This is a picture of the entire face:
North face

You can see that there is only a small section of ice.

Nice photo

You seem to be driving in an icesrew, but I don't see a rope! Are you soloing?

Re: Nice photo

We were soloing untill this point. We used this screw for our belay. So for the next section we did use a rope :-).

Cheers, Jurgen

Re: oh..

It sure was awesome! A little exiting but not dangerous, so no need to worry.

love this shot

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.

Re: love this shot

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 :)
