“One of the greatest qualities of the mountaineer is observation.”
It’s a good thing Galuchot Victor took a moment to observe this terrain and administer a few well place stomps to this ridge before dropping in. This thing was ready go.
Friendly reminder to everyone planning on the traveling in the backcountry next winter to get your avalanche safety certs. Might be the middle of the summer but its a good time to begin or continue your avalanche safety educational journey. MORE INFO HERE:
ENGLISH TRANSLATION TO VICTOR’S COMMENTS TO ABOVE VIDEO:
4 days ago, I decided that for all my outings from now on, I will find very safe climbs to reach the top on the lines. Do not expose myself to the climb and make fine corridors that I can purge from above before making the decision to ski or not. Here is the first lane I did after making this decision …
I find a solution to get around the problem because I don’t have the wisdom to stay home.
The mountain does not want to let us pass. So we force the passage. And we are wrong.
I think I am gauging it properly.
But if a man who has climbed the Green 100 times gets tricked, who am I to think of managing?
One of the greatest qualities of the mountaineer is observation. There I think we saw enough to brake with both feet.
Some will do the best lines of the year, others the last of their lives. I would like to ski again next spring and those after.
I can’t tell you not to go. I myself will go.
But I lower my gauge to the minimum.
Appreciate the mountains with lesser goals. The time that again, she agrees to let us pass.
Happy skiing to all
