Awesome! Looks incredible.

Is it just the camera angles or is that actually slightly overhanging?... It seemed hard to keep track.

In reply to smallerrich: It pretty steep but not overhanging, or at least it wasn't that day...

It's a great route, and although I have only climbed it as a second, it's pretty darn steep. Funnily enough, the seracs went when we were on it too. Excellent route and great vid, thanks :-)

In reply to smallerrich: I suppose that anything above 85 odd degrees feels overhanging because of the way one leans out, but can ice be overhanging? I suppose if you think about the outside of a dagger it will be, so have actually answered my own question.
