I bailed from up there on Tuesday arvo and didnt see them on the way down or prior to leaving but that is not the point...... On Monday as I was having a bit of an arvo nanna nap in the tent at Fed Hut, a heli was zooming around the razorback ridge and feathertop like a mozzsie on steroids. I was wondering why they were doing it (rescue or joyflight) and I spose this photo suggests heli's do run joy flights around there?

man it was great up there, now in the post-trip doldrums of everyday life....

I'll be the first to admit that I don't know jack about mountaineering or snow safety, but isn't the guy on the right standing on a big cornice? In some degree of peril?? Or do I have it all wrong.

Depends on the snow conditions really, and your experience in judging those conditions.
Some cornices break off! but who said mountaneering was free from peril?

i was thinking that but the other photos show the cornice to not be that big, also it appears that the guy is standing a bit further back from the other, so he's not actually near the edge.

Edit: to answer your other question Tmarsh, yes it would be dangerous to stand on a cornice, as if it broke off not only would one be falling but there is potential to start an avalanche depending on the conditions.
