Katie Larson descending the snow slope that provides passage through the spectacular Wrong snout, one of several spots that got our attention during a week-long traverse from the ski run of Snow Ocean to the famous Battle Abbey lodge.

         Go left on the Wrong to go right,
         The icefall's a wondrous sight.
           There's a cliff at the end,
           So follow your friend,
         And your turns had better be tight.
