  1. I was carefully traversing the upper snowfield at Tuckermans Ravine in NH on a very steep pitch like this when an impatient guy charged past me doing it wrong. He lost footing and started a death slide the full length of the upper snowfield then head first over the lip, continuing a slide almost the full length of the lower snowfield.

    He stopped 10 feet from huge boulders at the bottom of the snow (700ft vertical slide) and laid motionless for 5 minutes. I really thought he was dead but in total amazement I see him slowly get up and start to move like nothing was wrong !

Got an opinion? Let us know...
