I got lost on an early Neve traverse (1977), and wandered down the east side of Opal Cone by mistake. - Big mistake. The terrain is extremely steep and consists of one deep ravine after another. We ended up taking our skiis off and booting steps up and down the walls of the gullies. That traverse took five days.
