Topping out the N-couloir
Here's my friend Mikko plodding his way up to the saddle on top of the North Couloir. We desided to rope up for this climb as this was our first genuine alpine-route. The snowstorm added a bit of exciment and missery making the route a perfect first alpine-route. Most people would not bother roping up for this kind of snow-plod, but roping up didn't slow us down all that much, when we compared our time to the ones at a guidebook.
