    I dont get it with the Picture “Looking down the headwall of the Second Step from the top of the Step”. What is shown? Is the photo mirrored? The Portion to the right in the picture, it looks really steep. Is this the north face or kangshung face? Is corkscrew chimney in the left part of the picture near to the climber in red clothes?

    Thanks, Wolfgang

      Hi Wolfgang,

      This shot is from the very top of the Second Step looking down. The Corkscrew Chimney is, as you note, in the upper left of the frame, and on the right side is the steep headwall to climber’s left on the ascent. Hope this makes sense.
