this is the point at which it is important to discuss the virtues of climbing what you're planning to ride.

you don't want to get to the top of a 2-3k foot couloir having walked around it, drop in, and then in 20-100ft find out that you are in fact on top of a sheet of ice in a col with no exit but 2k under you....
