That's the face that Joe Simpson got avalanched down, isn't it? What a thought...
Lovely photos again, gav.

Cheers. No, Joe Simpson fell down this - /images/dbpage.html?id=80388 - the NE-slope, and I believe he's not the only climber to take the fast ride down. I don't think anyone would survive falling down the North Face.
