Robson / Roof Glacier to Kain Shoulder / 1981

After a extremely close call fall (that would be me) on the approach to the Wishbone, Jay and I retreated to the hut. I'd fallen in the great couloir with my axe on my pack rather than in my hands. After a long sliding fall I was able to somehow self arrest in a soft pillow of snow. Really scary and stupid. The next day we found a nice line to the right of the so called 'hourglass couloir' that got us to the Kain Shoulder where we joined that route.
