My new favorite bivi spot as it brings you right infront of this awesome face. Took a while to work out how to get to the place but it was a very special night.

Its an 8 minute exposure so the stove wasnt quite as explosive as it seems! Eyebrows got away fine.....

Fantastic. I actually thought it was the Ben at first glance!

I'm definitely highlighting my ignorance but it looks a bit like the North face of the Ben to me!
