Nice pic. One of the few routes I have actually done. You have really made it look impressive!

It certainly doesn't look like a grade 1 climb from that angle. What route were you on at the time?

Hi. Yes it is deceptive. With the gully slanting away from the camera and my high viewpoint at the top of the buttress looking down it does appear a bit steep for the straightforward snow gully it is. The number of people in the gully was the main reason I took the shot and I'm please to see its raised a bit of a discussion in the forum on the safety aspects of parties moving together in a gully like this. Cheers, Roy
