Yes thats us and correctly identified the thin ice pitch! I am currently trying to work out how far till the next runner! Agree with the conditions you mention and defo a great day out all the same. Could I possibly get a copy of this photo? It's a nice, atmospheric shot. Cheers, Chad

Is that some frozen ropes hanging down on the left from the basin?

Chad - send me your contact details and I'll send you a high resolution version.
Yes there was a rope hanging down into Orion and very handy for clipping it was! Would be interesting to hear from the owners.........

The icefall to the L looks more climbable.
