Cosmiques Couloir with Karl

Karl and I headed up to do the Cosmiques this morning. Karl was a bit hung over and had forgotten an ice axe so we had to abseil in.

Karl is thinking hard about his BASI training and getting his hands in that ‘hula-hoop’ position before setting off.

Why does everyone look like this in steep couloir photos?

We sneak across to some untouched snow.

How deep was that pow?

And a cheesy grin from the boy in the trees at the bottom.
