Re: Very Impressive

Yes, it is.

The normal route is the ridge on the left. When we climbed it, a few weeks before taking this picture, we only brought a couple of snow pickets as protection pieces; no ice screws needed. It was a beautiful climb.

An Ideal Peak

This mountain has a very compelling form. Nice capture!

Re: An Ideal Peak

Yes, it looks like a beautiful pyramid from this angle :-)

Ice Cream Eye Candy!

That mountain sure has a nice top to it. But looks very problematic for climbing.

Re: Ice Cream Eye Candy!

The ridge on the left isn't as bad as it looks. A few crevasses to deal with, and a few somewhat steep sections, but the route is not a maze as it may appear to be from this side.
