I do have one with him in the sun but I like the purple colour. It was 2 a.m.

We were aiming for the Brown/Willans route on Poincenot but 2 days later could not see the hills )):

I did say we had been to the Latitude and Fairview and the beer was flowing freely ((:

See what you mean about the background. Maybe PhotoShop can help

OK moabbeth ... rub it in (: As I say we did not take advantage of it and the weather went downhill from here. My advice, if the weather is half reasonable go for it.

3 out of 5 stars Superbly sharp photo.

Not as sharp as I would like. But to be honest it is easy to take reasonable pictures down there. Just point and shoot.

Well that's what I call it. Just wander out onto the hill and look for a suitable bit of ice to play on.

Superb composition. I wish I liked pure jamming.

5 out of 5 stars Scary ??

The 'road' leads to the hydro electric pumped storage power scheme which pumps water up at night and lets it fall during the day generating electricity. So we have a lake high up in the mountains that has 'a tide'. Some people have been caught out camping on the shore

Looks like you took it from the same place as my shot. Nice place isn't it. Did you get any climbing ?

Not a good idea

5 out of 5 stars The Original Route is 1000m TD+ with pitches of V+ and is almost direct from just below the centre of the photo. The American Direct is 1100m ED-/ED Pitches of VI (Before the rockfall). The North Face sort of up the LH rock ridge right of the snow is 850m TD pitches of V+. The Traverse can be AD pitches of IV.

She was not leading at the time. Much happier for me to lead.
Ropes are 8 or 8.5 mm

5 out of 5 stars It took us a full day hauling to reach the middle of the glacier behind us. If you look at the other picture I have here you will see our camp at that point.

"she needs a spandex top to get a good rating."
Those pictures are private ((:

Cheers. It is a 'friendly' place considering how remote/far from help we were. We were happy to walk around unroped in most places.
Biggest problem is judging the scale. The valley at left took us two hours to ski to.

We did LBJ just after this. Nice route but I stood around on the nose just after the overlap for a while. Top crack was superb

Not that cold whilst we were there. Just windy.

A quick Google says it is 5.11b. Is that right?

I was here is 1982 and all my photos came out too dark ):
The tracks lead back to the Monchjoch Hutte, opened recently before I was there and a superb hut. Good views to the right to the Matterhorn and beyond.
