Hi

when we finished BB yesterday coming over the top you quickly pass a very narrow col with smallish snow gullies either side (left and right (s, n)) where do these go ? Can they be used for descent,

we went up then down left (s) and down climbed down South Gully back to bags.

In reply to lithos: whatever you do just make sure your decent is in condition. If the decent isnt in condition you may erode the bare unprotected groung that you will be walking on.

In reply to efrance24234: You mean your descent needs to be in decent nick?

thanks, we just werent sure and it was not long before dark so didnt want to go down and come back up! Is it 'generally' (conditions dependent) quite safe and easy ? just for next time :-)
