Climbing the last gargoyle before the summit
Early on in the gargoyles.  Robson was the only mountain to stick out of the clouds so we never were able to see other peaks or the lower part of the mountain while on the upper ridge.

About 3/4 way up the gargoyles.  The rope weaves on alternate sides of the gargoyles - there are no other anchors.

Damn does that look sketchy. Nice series of pictures John.

Yeah - it was way sketchy! The snow alternated between mildly solid on the top of each gargoyle to totally rotten in the gaps. It was probably just as well we couldn't see all the way down. The big question in our minds was whether we had the guts to jump off one side if our partner fell off the other. Fortunately this never got put to the test.
