Kirk Miller starting the face in early August, 150' below Torreys summit. A short step, 40 degrees maybe, separates him from the wide open snow.  Then another choke, partly hidden, guards the junction with the left (west) fork and more steep turns. Like the North Pole at A-Basin for 2,000+ feet.  You can see where the snow just ends, with no safe run out of snow. <br>
