Yes, that drop was a little scary.
Not because of the angle or drop, it was because if you slipped and slid to the lake and happened to go in, you would be sliding strait into 15 feet deep ice cold water with a pack on. The drop off was sheer for that 150 foot section.
The pass is twice as steep but if you slid, you would have a spot to stop within 50 yards and wouldn't drown.
The biggest problem with this, is that we were the first ones through because we went counter clockwise. When going c/c it is almost impossible to find the gap mentioned above, on the way down.
I've tried it once and was climbing down several 8' cliffs at a 60% angle.
Everybody else that was going clockwise (in the snow) would need at least microspikes and an ice ax or you won't make it.
By the time you wouldn't need the extra equipment to reach Glen, the snow along the lake would be melted.
So unless you have crampons and an ax, don't even bother going clockwise when there's snow all the way to the lake. it seemed as if most people didn't know this since they just hear people say that the best route is clockwise.
I'll post some more pics when i get a chance. it may be early next week, but I have a lot more to share now.
