We interrupt air bag reviews for this skiing message…
The NE Face of the Pfiefferhorn in all of its gory glory. Rat-a-tat-tat... hang on to your hat. The "XX" marks the anchors at the top of the 30m rappel.
And the boot of choice for the day is... the Scarpa Maestrale. I've been skiing in these all year and love them.
Noah busting tracks below the NE face. At this point it was window-pane crust on top of muck. Confidence was not high.
Andy Jacobsen creeping towards the anchors after some prolonged sketchy skiing.
Two 3" five-piece 3/8" stainless-steel bolts with Fixe Rap anchors. Go ahead - haul your Hemi up here. They'll hold.
Andy calmly checking his camera exposure while Noah checks out a different type of exposure behind him.
Happiness is a warm rap anchor.
I love the wild, rugged feel of this little slice of the Wasatch.
Noah starting down the rappel.
Sucess! We're alive! Noah had been stormed or iced off the NE three times before, so not only was he (and all of us) psyched to have finally done it, but it was also the last line he had to ski to tick off all of "The Chuting Gallery." Nice job Noah!
