Tops

A truly driven, ridden, climbed, solo adventure. One for National Geographic I reckon. It's great doing sfuff by yourself, you really get close to the "you" inside.

Re: Tops

Thanks Ray! You have a great attitude, and understand the 'solo' folly. As for National Geographic, maybe not with a six-ounce camera.

Re: Kropp Re-incarnated?

Thanks! Actually, a beautiful ice-fairy came to see me during a whiteout. Her big wings were a little awkward in the tent, and her skin was chilly, but she warmed up just fine when... until... crash! Those darn falling rocks woke me up!

Re: Fantastic solo effort

Thanks Bill for your help last year, and your encouragement on Oct 16th to get this TR out. Love your 'A Few Words', great attitude. Got a feeling we'll meet up.

Re: Fantastic solo effort

Let me know if you get down to Calgary and have some time - we can grab a beer or maybe do a climb or scramble.
Take care

Re: Great Climb and Fantastic Report

Hey Brad, it was my most intense one ever and a close call! Not like Stefan on Aconcagua. I won't visit him in mountaineers' heaven just yet.

Fantastic stuff indeed

Really great TR, should be featured. Congrats, for making the top and for the exceptional report! Of course my other half won't be so happy about your report, it's given me a real lust to start soloing.

Re: Fantastic stuff indeed

Thanks! Looks like you're near a wonderland in the alps. A balance of soloing and sharing is the best. Make sure you got a PLB or satt phone when soloing of coarse, and take your time, you'll love it.

First Solo Climb

for perspective I think this is the first solo of this mountain and probably the 10th to 15th person to climb the mountain.
