Response to Re: Borah N. Face
Thanks George and John. What makes the climb unique are those features best seen in George's picture. I am referring to those vertical snow ridges that run up and down the snow field below the headwall. I don't even know what to call them. They are like vertical cornices. The right side may be 50 degrees but the left side is near vertical. So when you are moving sideways, you need to drop off the 70-80 degree backside of the feature. We crossed two of them It was really wild.
