I normally don't carry a gopro, splitboarding is enough fiddling for me. So apologies for the awkward camera angles.
This was in the middle of our 4+ week drought when everything in the alpine was glued together by a nearly bullet proof temperature crust. Fun line though. 2220m from summit ridge back down to the road. Board off and a couple steps to the car.
Climb is pretty straight forward. Ski crampons would have saved me the final 600m of boot packing and occasionally postholing/swimming through the facets beneath the crust . It was 7 hrs to the summit. A fun little scramble and great view.
