Nick and I had planned an outing 'round the Pfeiferhorn, but the thought of post-holing across thinly covered moraine sounded less appealing than the 'dry' southerly aspects up canyon.

needless to say, it worked out well, with just enough snow to increase the technicality, and provide that exciting alpine feel.

Thank you beau for showing me this classic. That was truly an introduction for me to a different type of exposure and trusting the anchors on the end of my arms. Finger strength is so key.
