Awesome. Any chance of watching the footage from the Go Pro on your head?

Nice. Met you guys in the NF car park. Looking forward to the video!

Absolutely brilliant Al, really jealous! Some answers please: How was the snow under ski, How long do you think it will last for further descents like this and at what level did it run out?

The snow condition will have changed with the heavy rain on Sun/Mon so difficult to say exactly what its like underfoot now. What is for sure is that the gully will be skiable for another month yet although perhaps not all the way to the foot of Tower ridge as it was on Saturday

Great stuff - as very few on UKC knows what the Tower Double actually was it might be worth looking at this link https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10152871223270165.1073741838.515260164&type=1

Many thanks for all the comments, it was one of those times where before the shutter had even been depressed the resultant pic was likely to be good. It was a full on day with Tower ridge beforehand providing a classic alpine way to reach Tower Gully
