Re: Far Out

You shoulda been there! Cold wind, but rock a bit sun-warmed...

Re: WOW

My friend Pete took the picture, and he made me freeze in place thanks to his photographic eye. Thanks for the note!

Re: Impressive....

Thanks, I see that it looks like it's "pic o the day" which is already exciting!

Re: Nice!

Ah, not quite, it's very near the summit on the normal route, note the Ober Gabelhorn behind!

Re: Classic!

For sure. You get a little bit of everything on this easy route, lots of mixed snow/rock.

Gotta love that when a partner days, "Don't move! Freeze" and there's like 500m of air below you.
Excellent picture and great avatar pic.

Re: Hmmm ..

I really don't know! That seems to be the nature of sudden "pic o the day" fame. It's true, I post my pictures mainly on Flickr, but not this one as it's my new profile pic. Thx for the vote!
