Now to get the hell off here....

Really good you've put these photos up Rob. I knew you'd done it and who with, but had no idea about details. This one must be very important to you.

Thanks. Finally got around to getting some slides scanned.

Fine, and scary set of shots - obviously you really earned that one! The initial shot of the face doesn't look to have much snow, so I guess you had a bit of a storm? Impressive effort.

Excellent conditions on lower half, but mostly powder on dry rock from the Ramp (and bad weather). Reliable weather forecasts and conditions reports not available back then pre-internet!

Great set of shots. Perhaps worth a short UKC article on the climb?
