Warm gullies, ridges and naked extreme skiers!!








Sunny and warm and very quiet today with one party on Fingers Ridge and Su and Rob heading up towards Jacob's Ladder and some skiers descending Aladdin's Couloir (thinnish for skiing!) and later a  streaking skier in Jacob's Ladder!
We headed in around noon and up Central Gully on surprisingly firm snow to climb the warm sunny rock on Pygmy Ridge (sun hits the ridge around 14.00 hrs.) A bite to eat while we enjoyed the views before heading over and down Jacob's Ladder following some recent ski tracks.
While I explored the gully wall bergschrunds, Fi headed down and bumped into to Su and her partner Rob climbing up. See Su's photo album here
I was quite surprised to see Su again and even more surprised when she mentioned she'd seen a completely naked skier descending Jacob's just before we arrived!!!!!
