Are those rocks steaming?

I wonder if the fumaroles emit some caustic substance that could damage a rope? Anyway, nice job getting out and trying something semi-obscure. I remember gazing down 1D from the east crater rim last April. It looked worthwhile and definitely more interesting than Wy'east.

Re: Are those rocks steaming?

Yep... with the low snow cover this year, the warm rocks up from Devil's Kitchen were melting out in several places. At one point, we crossed a chossy, dirt slope and used our axe just like in the snow. A few minutes later, steam was coming out of the hole we made in the dirt. Was kind of freaky... if we go back, we will do with when it has more snow.

Nice pic

I was up there yesterday wondering about that route. I could hear and see ice falling every few minutes from the cliffs. Excellent pic!

Re: WOW!!

Thanks Paolo. It was a pretty interesting position on the mountain.
