The "wall". I was waiting for Matthew to come down to help show how steep it is but he snuck down another way to avoid it. It's a little over 3 hours in on the way to the Eiseman Hut so you're already tired when you get to it. On the way out it always seems to be either icy or heavy, wet snow since it really gets the sun middle of the day. 2/8/06
