Mosaic of point on the slide.
First up-close view of the beckhorn from the north side of the primary drainage. Snowing and picking up pace. We were about 1.5 hrs away at this point.
Primary drainage about 1600' from bottom pitch.
NP working his way up the drainage.
Bottom of the runout. Notice the old tributary (left) that lead directly to Beckhorn and 2011 tributary leading closer to the summit.
Getting steeper on approach in about 18" of crust/snow.
Bottom of the first pitch.
Breaking trail up the first pitch. Notice the slides on the southern side Dix' eastern ridge behind NP.
A bit of ice.
Set of ledges at the top of the first pitch.
Slope of the mid-slide area.
NP climbing the ice dragging a rope. We were both set to use protection if necessary, but didn't end up needing it after all...better safe than sorry.
Looking up the thin slide toward the Beckhorn.
Traversing over to the 2011 tributary.
Looking up toward the final pitch...still an hour away.
Mess of a new slide helped keep the snow stable.
Ledges at between the two tributaries.
Looking at NP above the ledges.
Kevin above the central ledges in the snowfield.
Using the flash on the camera to illuminate the snow...the sun had set by this point.
Twilight on the upper pitch.
Here's what it really looked like.
Trigger point at the top.
Ledge at the slide top...where it's steepest.
NP on the final pitch.
