is the climber a shift worker? I can't imagine night climbing adds pleasure to the difficulties

I'm a student. The night accent was completely incredible. For about 2 hours the light from just before and after sunrise was spectacular.

Great shot. Incredible amount of snow loaded on those slopes.

Brilliant. Looks like the guy is on top of some huge summit snow mushroom.

love this unique composition

Outstanding shot - must have made an ascent in darkness all the more worth while. 5*.

Aye, great composition. And look at that light in Coire Leis! I remember being on the Eastern Traverse at night and thinking the rescue helicopter must be out as there was so much light in Coire Leis and Observatory Gully. But no: it was the full moon. Utterly magical.
